Temporality is an influential aspect of service-based systems (SBS). Inability of a service to achieve time requirements may lead to violation of service-level agreements (SLA's) in a SBS. Such non-conformity by a service may introduce temporal inconsistency between dependent services and the composition. The temporal impact of the anomaly on related services and also the composition will need to be identified if SLA violations have to be rectified. Existing studies concentrate on impact analysis due to web service evolution or changes to a web service. There is a huge lacunae regarding studies on impact of time delay on temporal constraints of dependent services and obligations of business process. Although reconfiguration of SBS to overcome failures is extensively addressed, reconfiguration triggered due to temporal delay is not well explored. In this study, we try to fill the gap between reconfiguration and impact analysis invoked due to temporal violations. Once the impacted region and the amount of temporal deviation to the business process are known, we try recovery by localising the reconfiguration of services to the impacted zone.
