Distributed workflow based approach for eliminating redundancy in virtual enterprising
- 146 Downloads
The existence of redundancy is a serious problem in virtual enterprise in which a number of collaborating enterprises join together to manufacture and sell a class of product for a time-limited period. This paper proposes a new approach for detection and elimination of redundancy in virtual enterprises; the proposed approach is based on workflow and uses a Petri net for modeling and simulation of workflows. This paper also presents a working example as a proof of concept.
