Collaboration is a key factor for carrying out activities in industrial processes and an efficient collaboration is essential to accomplish an overall improvement of any process. In this article, we introduce a collaborative process-modeling framework, which allows evaluating collaboration throughout all the activities of an industrial process. The proposed framework uses experience management notions towards the creation of a repository of collaboration experiences. This experience base facilitates the reuse of past experiences to support decision making for the organization and execution of future collaborations. The article concludes by discussing the contributions and limitations of the proposed collaboration model.
