Abstract

A core requirement for inter-enterprise collaboration in a virtual enterprise (VE) is the availability of an inter-enterprise Intranet service that facilitates the seamless flow of data and information between the different actors involved in addition to fostering an environment for collaboration. This paper is based on explorations and findings of trying to find/develop an inter-enterprise Intranet service for the participants of a virtual enterprise. Some required functionalities/support that were identified include: concurrent engineering, suitability to project business conditions, open system architecture, electronic document management, product structure/configuration management, access control, redlining/mark-up, groupwork support, user profiling, version and revision management, workflow management, distributed databases, application integration, and application launching. The paper concludes by illustrating an envisioned system architecture for inter-enterprise intranet services.
