Service concept is evolving as a broad idea recurrently discussed in recent years as it originates from many disciplines such as marketing, operations and computer science. Despite this interdisciplinary nature of service concept, existing methodologies for building service-oriented systems provide limited support to include a complete coverage of various engineering phases for a unified development and are therefore not directly applicable to service-oriented architectures. In particular, the design of coordination mechanisms between service providers and customers as well as the design of a common vocabulary in an inter-organizational setting is not adequately addressed. To face these shortcomings, in this position paper, we present an interdisciplinary approach integrating recently proposed methodologies into one coherent engineering methodology. The methodology aims to build a system that extends the basic find-bind-execute paradigm of Web services on an electronic market platform.
