Abstract

Collaboration in Supply Chains is a trending topic in the research area of operations planning. The management of collaborative plans within supply networks is seen as a proper mechanism to support enterprises on dealing with uncertainties and dynamicity associated to the current markets. Enterprises, and especially SMEs, should be able to overcome the market turbulence by increasing their competitiveness. To deal with this situation, new optimisation algorithms are required in order to improve the collaboration within the supply network partners. As part of the H2020 Cloud Collaborative Manufacturing Networks (C2NET) research project, this paper presents a study among production and distribution plans with the main aim of identifying gaps in the current optimisation models taking into account the requirements and needs coming from the industry.
