    Collaboration with other companies has long been a practice in several industrial fields like construction and one-of-a-kind manufacturing. During the last decades, it has, however, increased and extended further to other industries and operations. One catalytic factor is, of course, the extensive development in ICT. Also, research in collaborative networks is substantial. It has often focused on ICT tools, components, and infrastructures supporting the collaboration. The basic rules, operating principles, and practices in the collaboration world are still dispersed and not well defined. A need to consolidate and synthesize the existing knowledge of collaborative networks by creating a scientific discipline for it has been announced (Camarinha-Matos & Afsarmanesh, 2004).
