Abstract

The reality in today's business is to compete with dynamic and shorter market opportunities. In order to cope up with such environment, manufacturing firms, especially small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) are needed to collaborate with each other for mutual benefits. This collaboration offers process enhancement within the environment of virtual enterprise (VE) and contributes towards sharing costly resources and valuable knowledge among manufacturing companies. This research is basically focused on the process collaboration among companies that motivates them achieving identified business opportunities. A collaboration framework is proposed in this paper with respect to VE process mapping. Visualization of such processes is also highlighted though 'Dashboard' user interfaces in order to monitor and control a successful VE.
