Management Data Specification for Supply Chain Integration
Yung-Tsun Lee, Shigeki Umeda
This document specifies a framework of communication data in a supply chain system, which is viewed as a virtual enterprise. First presented is a requirement analysis to identify the information necessary to represent the communication for the produciton management of a supply chain. The requirement analysis has been based on the practical business operations in one of the US manufacturing companies. A specifiaction that describes all information requirements using the XML language is presented. The specification will be used to synchronize the business operations within a supply chain system or a supply chain simulation system. The specification can also be the basis for developing applications, using the Electronic Commerce, a database management system, or a knowledge base system, to support the supply chain integration.
