Abstract:As a data space, IDS only facilitates the data exchange activities. It does not provide a way to solve interoperability issues that might happen between two data participants, such as different names in the data schemas and unknown total costs for data access. We propose Interoperability Simulator as an additional IDS component to solve interoperability issues at the syntactic level. We designed the architecture and the business processes of the Interoperability Simulator, then analyzed how they can fit into the existing IDS architecture and business processes. The design artifacts were used to build a prototype that consists of two main functions, namely the Schema Matching function and the Pricing Calculation function. We formulated three interoperability scenarios to observe the behavior of the prototype. We also gathered opinions from several experts to validate the design and prototype of the Interoperability Simulator. According to the validation results, we concluded that the current prototype of the Interoperability Simulator can be used to discover initial interoperability issues at the syntactic level. We also identified the limitations of the current prototype and proposed several points that can be carried out as future work.
