A federated architecture for Concurrent Engineering is presented and special emphasis is put on the aspects of enterprise modelling and control knowledge to support the coordination of teams of experts. The prototype described combines both information integration and cooperation support functionalities. This paper addresses mainly the business plan interpreter and its multilevel supervision knowledge. Open questions and directions for further research in the context of networks of enterprises (extended or virtual enterprise) are summarized.
