A platform to support production planning and management in a virtual enterprise

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript

Abstract

The materialization of the paradigm of virtual enterprise, although enabled by recent developments in communication technologies and computer networks, requires the definition of a reference architecture and the design and development of a supporting platform and appropriate protocols and mechanisms. This paper describes the approach being developed by the European Esprit project PRODNET, which aims at designing and developing an open platform to support industrial virtual enterprises with special focus on the needs of small and medium enterprises.
