PRODUCTION PLANNING & CONTROL

Abstract
In the recent years, it has been confirmed both by theory and by practice that organisational models need to include networking strategies to cope with the current competitive environment. Different collaboration levels can characterise supply chains, virtual organisations (VO) and business communities; however, managing different networking scenarios is extremely important to allow SMEs to respond to market opportunities, ensuring a quick response, unique products with competitive prices and high product quality. This paper proposes an innovative methodological approach to support collaboration amongst SMEs for customised product design and manufacturing based on the VO concept. The work is based on mapping the methodology with the most important processes characterising the life of a VO and defining the operative practices to be performed within this type of network. This paper presents two case studies in the fashion industry, where the proposed approach for network management was tested and analysed.

Publication
INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF COMPUTER INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING

Abstract
This paper presents part of the findings of a research project aiming at characterising high-performance collaborative business networks and at defining the conditions required for their creation and management. The project adopted a multiple case study research strategy and three different business networks are presented in this paper. Empirical studies have been performed in Northern Portugal. The results of the study include operational definitions based on a comprehensive literature review, a conceptual reference framework for the analysis of high-performance collaborative networks and recommendations for the creation and management of such networks.

Abstract
The effective creation and management of business networks is more and more an important contribution for the competitiveness and sustainability of European SMEs. In Non-hierarchical networks SMEs join their competencies and resources to grab profitable business opportunities. In these networks SMEs take the leading role and control the business instead of being subcontracted by large companies and traditional supply chains. This paper presents a conceptual framework, including methodological approach, best practices and reference processes aiming at supporting SMEs in creating and managing non-hierarchical networks for complex products design and manufacturing. The framework high level structure and the most specific processes are presented, including: capacity management, collaborative operations planning, risk and event management and performance management. The framework was validated in three pilot networks, from the textile, footwear and machine tools industries. © 2013 The Authors.

Intelligent Non-hierarchical Manufacturing Networks

Abstract
This book provides the latest models, methods and guidelines for networked enterprises to enhance their competitiveness and move towards innovative high performance and agile industrial systems. In the new global market, competitiveness and economic growth rely greatly on the move toward innovative high performance industrial systems and agile networked enterprises through the creation and consolidation of non-hierarchical manufacturing networks of multi-national SMEs as opposed to networks based on powerful large-scale companies. Network performance can be significantly improved through more harmonious and equitable peer-to-peer inter-enterprise relationships, conforming decentralized and collaborative decision-making models. Traditional hierarchical manufacturing networks are based on centralized models, where some of the actors involved must adapt themselves to the constraints defined by those who are most dominant. Real-world experiences of such models have revealed some major problems due to the centralized vision of the supply chain and the sub-optimal performance of centralized decision-making. For the current highly dynamic markets, this generates major inefficiencies in operation throughout the supply chain. This book collects the latest research regarding non-hierarchical manufacturing networks and provides enterprises with valuable models, methods and guidelines to improve their competitiveness. © 2013 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Performance Measurement

Authors
Ferreira, S; Cunha, PF; Carneiro, LM; Toscano, C;

Publication
Intelligent Non-hierarchical Manufacturing Networks

Abstract
Performance measurement determines, based on data, if the process, business unit or organization is progressing toward the goals as planned. This chapter describes the approach proposed for performance measurement, that is part of the Net-Challenge framework for the performance management in collaborative networks (CNs). The chapter first presents an overview of performance measurement in the framework and introduces the concept of the performance factor. Some typical performance factors and some known approaches are elaborated. Collaboration is addressed in particular. Next, the chapter discusses factorization and disaggregation as the development of the performance factors in two dimensions. Then, the chapter explains the three main activities of performance measurement, including definition of what to measure and targets setting, setup of a measurement system, and measurement and analysis of performance. Finally, the chapter briefly provides information and communication technology (ICT) platform to support performance management. ©2013 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
