The proposed book is intended to provide a conceptual framework of ‘Flexible Enterprise’ supported by researches/case applications in different types of flexibilities exhibited by a flexible enterprise. The selected papers covering a variety of issues concerning the planning and operation of a flexible enterprise are organized into following four parts:
