Configuration and coordination issues in a virtual enterprise environment

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

Abstract

An architecture to support the implementation of a computer-based infrastructure to allow the participation of Small and Medium size Enterprises (SMEs) in a Virtual Enterprise (VE) environment is presented emphasizing the configuration and coordination aspects. The architecture is employing the new emerging standards and advanced technologies in communication, cooperative information management and distributed decision making. The multi-level coordination approach adopted in the PRODNET architecture1 is briefly presented, focusing the hierarchical workflow management aspects. The proposed approach provides the flexibility, privacy and customization support for a company within a VE Environment as well as the internal coordination of all events/messages arriving at the company.
