NEW APPROACHES TO ENTERPRISE COOPERATION GENERATION AND MANAGEMENT

Jörg Lässig, Ullrich Trommler

Abstract

The paper considers the problem of task specific cooperation generation and management in a network of small or medium sized enterprises. Such short-term cooperations are called Virtual Enterprices. So far this problem has been discussed by several authors by applying different methods from artificial intelligence as multi-agent systems, ant colony optimization, or genetic algorithms, and combinations of them. In this paper we discuss this problem from a target oriented point of view and focus on the question how it can be modeled to keep its complexity controllable by considering sequential, parallel, and non-combinatorial approaches. After describing the implementation of a cooperation generation solution as rich internet application also solutions for the management of such cooperations considering aspects as replanning are described.
