Distributed enterprise resources planning (ERP) can be customized to the specific requirements of each segment in networked structures for upgrading the small & medium enterprises' (SMEs) value chain. Because the implementation and control processes of distributed ERP systems are challenging in enterprises having limited resources, this study proposed a multi-criteria optimization method on ERP systems assessment in food industry networked enterprises. Networked enterprises can organize SMEs into the effective architecture which has more advantageous in the integration of total capacity through interoperability and collaboration. The proposed method is based on the control of food ERP optimization & orchestration in networked enterprises (FEo2NE). The architecture of FEo2NE controller encapsulates distributed modules of food ERP master plan into cloud resources through centralized service-oriented architecture (SOA) for warranting orchestration. Thus networked SMEs can interoperate services according to the optimized requirements using the modules' controller. The remarkable points of the method capabilities are the multi-criteria optimization of food ERP and SMEs collaboration in the value chain's distributed platform. The value chain's sustainability is demonstrated and the results guide food SMEs for implementing the business strategies with cleaner production considerations.
