When competitiveness, responsiveness and customer satisfaction are keywords of a successful management in a business area, companies cannot work in an autonomous way anymore. They have to get closer to their supply chain partners and to optimize their relations, to interface and to integrate...

Scheduling decisions constitute the last decision-making phase of the production planning and control process. From the industrial side, the adoption of highly reactive and efficient scheduling and control systems strongly affects the level of productivity and utilization of a manufacturing...
Today, the enterprise must cooperate to survive in an increasingly competitive context. This co-operation is carried out by organisations in networks through the supply chain (SC). In order to do so, enterprises must be interoperable. In order to reach interoperability, the system must eradicate...
This study deals with the supply chain (SC) performance formalization. We propose to build performance measurement systems (PMSs) by linking an overall performance expression to elementary ones. The overall performance is associated to a global objective whose break-down provides elementary...
