Abstract

Unpredictable challenges from global markets and customers make manufacturers difficult to produce quality products satisfying cost and time constraints. To cope with competitive and dynamically changing internal and external conditions, the manufacturing industry needs to be equipped with advanced technologies including IT as well as substantial infrastructure. “e-Manufacturing” is referred to as a system methodology enabling the integration of manufacturing operations and functional objectives of an enterprise by using intelligent IT technologies such as Internet, tether-free communication methods including wireless networking or web-based connections. The key factor of e-Manufacturing is collaboration. Hence, we have developed four kinds of web-based collaboration systems, referred to as hub systems, while conducting e-Manufacturing project funded by the Korea government. In this paper, therefore, the functions and characteristics of each collaboration hub systems will be introduced. Furthermore a case study of business innovation by applying collaboration systems for SMEs(small and medium sized enterprises). As a result of applying collaboration systems to SMEs, they can get competitiveness because of effective web-based tools for them, and reach business innovation which makes them survive in a global market.
