Interoperability is an essential requirement to be verified when enterprises are starting and maintaining a collaborative relationship. To ensure that such a requirement is continuously met, interoperability needs to be assessed. Various assessment approaches have been proposed in the literature to identify strengths and weakness of an enterprise in terms of their ability to interoperate. However, the main existing approaches are addressing specific aspects of interoperability and focusing on one type of measurement. To assess different aspects of interoperability of the same company, one may use multiple approaches which might cause redundancy and confusion considering the different metrics. Therefore, the objective of this paper, is to propose an assessment approach based on the so called Ontology of Enterprise Interoperability. The proposed approach is supported by a semi-automated tool aiming at reducing the time and paperwork required for evaluation. An example of a networked enterprise is used to validate the approach.
