Abstract

Today, markets offer a variety of enterprise information systems for manufacturing industries. In many cases, these systems are independent solutions without any communication links between them. In global business, in which SMEs in the manufacturing industry are today deeply involved, the requirements for information sharing are increasing. Information should be seamlessly available at all times for enterprises as a whole, as well as for the individual employees’ needs. SMEs are facing the challenge of needing a common ICT solution to support their business functions; however, the applications available on the market are too complex for the purposes of an SME and any tailor-made solution tends to be too expensive for SMEs. This challenge has been the motivation for this research and development project, which aims to develop a supply-chain-oriented information platform for SMEs in the manufacturing industry.
