This paper proposes a novel model for automatic construction of business processes called IPCASCI (Intelligent business Processes Composition based on multi-Agent systems, Semantics and Cloud Integration). The software development industry requires agile construction of new products able to adapt to the emerging needs of a changing market. In this context, we present a method of software component reuse as a model (or methodology), which facilitates the semi-automatic reuse of web services on a cloud computing environment, leading to business process composition. The proposal is based on web service technology, including: (i) Automatic discovery of web services; (ii) Semantics description of web services; (iii) Automatic composition of existing web services to generate new ones; (iv) Automatic invocation of web services. As a result of this proposal, we have presented its implementation (as a tool) on a real case study. The evaluation of the case study and its results are proof of the reliability of IPCASCI.
