Abstract

This paper presents the UNL’s approach to extend the HOLOS agile scheduling system towards the extended enterprise. The concept of extended enterprise and related problems arc brought up, as well as the notion of agile scheduling. The HOLOS system architecture is briefly explained. The necessity to develop a high level decision support system (DSS) to manage the scheduling of a business process during its production in the network of enterprises is emphasized, as well as its main functions are presented. A general framework to integrate the DSS with the scheduling system is also shown. Finally, a flexible communication infrastructure to support the integration of an enterprise in the network is introduced.
