Abstract

Enterprises, especially SMEs, are increasingly aware of belonging to Collaborative Networks (CN), due to the competitive advantages associated to deal with markets globalization and turbulence. The participation in CN involves enterprises to perform collaborative planning along all the processes established with the CN partners. Nevertheless, the access of SMEs to optimisation tools, for dealing with collaborative planning, is currently limited. To solve this concern, novel optimisation approaches have to be designed in order to improve the integrated planning in CN. In order to deal with this problem, this paper proposes a baseline to identify current enterprise needs and literature solutions in the replenishment, production and delivery collaborative planning, as a part of the H2020 Cloud Collaborative Manufacturing Networks (C2NET) research project. The main gaps found between the literature reviewed and the enterprises’ needs are presented and discussed.
