Abstract

Partners search and selection is an important activity in the life cycle of a Virtual Enterprise. Among other factors, the commitment of the potential partners to fulfil quality requirements is a major decision criterion during the selection phase. An approach to search suppliers in suppliers’ directories available on Internet is presented and the major negotiation steps leading to an adequate selection of partners are introduced. The quality-related information management functionalities required in a virtual enterprise support platform are also discussed.
