The main objective of the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena in the research project MOPS is the description and implementation of software modules, which allow the execution of workflows for mobile processes. Towards a suitable solution we apply a tight integration of a workflow engine, a dynamic planner and a semantic service broker in combination with navigation software to meet the complex requirements of these changeable mobile infrastructures.

The Friedrich Schiller University of Jena is involved in the project with several chairs. The Software Engineering Group headed up by Prof. Dr. Rossak has many years' experience in the development of distributed and mobile applications. The workgroup also assist the other partners by the software development and are responsible for the coordination of technology. The automatic finding, combining and execution of services with the help of semantic service descriptions are one of the research fields of the Heinz-Nixdorf Endowed Chair of Practical Computer Science under the leadership of Prof. Dr. König-Ries. The workgroup of Artificial Intelligence conducted by Prof. Dr. Beckstein does research in the field of knowledge representation and AI-programming. As a part of the project the workgroup deals with the description, planning and control of mobile workflows and processes and with the detection and handling of errors.
