Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The overall goal of any manufacturing enterprise integration project is to achieve an enterprise that acts in a coordinated, intelligent fashion to any changes to its internal and external environment. In this paper, we will examine how the information sub-systems within a complex system can interact with each other in such a way that the action of the system as a whole can be seen to be intelligent in a global context. We will examine two ways in which intelligent cooperation can be achieved. We will then elaborate further on the method of cooperation that we find more appropriate and introduce an Information Infrastructure for Intelligent, Cooperating Sub-systems (IISICS).
