    The concept of Digital Extended Enterprise is presented as a form of highly competitive manufacturing network. The maturity model of digital extended enterprise is defined as a method for the management of the development of manufacturing networks. The research methods of this paper are literature studies in many topics as well as action research with five industrial companies. Our findings support the use of the digital maturity model in the qualitative assessment of development projects. The quantified business indicators can be used for evaluating the attained benefits, while the maturity model is used for assessing the development efforts and steps taken. A dependency matrix for studying the maturity model is defined. We address the oversimplification problem of maturity modelling and suggest the use of dependency matrix to alleviate the oversimplification problem, to improve the maturity model and to enhance the knowledge on the development of digital extended enterprise.
