    This paper outlines the main outcomes of the work performed for Industrial Scenarios and Requirements Analysis, under the project C2NET Cloud Collaborative Manufacturing Networks. To ensure a successful management of a collaborative network for the manufacturing industry, different collaboration planning problems and needs between supply chain stakeholders (suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, retailers, managers, etc.) along the entire supply chain are addressed. Four industrial pilots representing relevant sectors such as Automotive, Dermo-cosmetics, Metalworking SMEs networks and Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) of Hydraulic/Lubrication systems are described, and the main functionalities identified for the C2NET Cloud platform are highlighted. Additionally, acceptance criteria and corresponding metrics settled to validate the results of the project are explained.
