task will tackle the connection between buyers and suppliers of smart services
by taking into account a plethora of criteria such as: size of buyer’s
organisation, cost, time, distance, due date, quality, price, technical capability,
financial position, past performance, attitude and flexibility. At the same time,
matchmaking’s quality and performance in order to achieve minimal cost in
terms of both time and computational complexities.
