Service-oriented approach to system engineering makes engineers to rethink the way to build and maintain a system. Use of Web Service technologies enables to remove rigid connections between software components to reassemble them dynamically at run-time according to the actual needs of applications. Such an approach can in some cases provide additional necessary functionality, which may not have been envisioned at the design time. This chapter presents an approach to orchestration allowing dynamic formation of service hierarchies in in-line with production needs, which allows tracking on all the existing service workflows. Hence the locus of control for the overall system is kept. The use of eScop Manufacturing System Ontology (MSO) for orchestration purposes is also proposed to keep the track on orchestration workflows.
