In the environment of economic globalization, this paper proposed partner selection and optimization based on manufacturing resource sharing platform for virtual enterprise. Firstly, a comprehensive evaluation system for virtual enterprise partner selection was established. Secondly, the weight of evaluation was defined based on the market conditions and nature of the project by analytic hierarchy process (AHP). Thirdly, a multi-objective optimization model for virtual enterprise partner selection was established. Fourthly, an optimal combination scheme was solved by self-adaptive genetic algorithm. Finally, effectiveness of partner selection and optimization for virtual enterprise was proved by an example.
