In the SUddEN (SMEs Undertaking Design of Dynamic Ecosystem Networks) project a web-based environment has been researched supporting automotive SMEs (Small and Medium Sized Enterprises) with respect to organisational interoperability using performance measurement systems. Using a CAS (Complex Adaptive Systems) point of view, we have implemented a Domain Specific Language and interoperability support services implementing the SUddEN frame of reference. Extending interoperability support to the process and data level, this environment enables simulating processes and data transfers.
