Business Interoperability for Collaborative Platforms with Axiomatic Design Theory for Lean, Agile, Resilient and Green Industrial Ecosystems (BI-LARG-IE) research aim is to develop a methodology to enable the detailed design of ICT-based platforms that is able to deliver high levels of Business Interoperability. The design methodology for Business Interoperability platforms will be grounded on the Axiomatic Design Theory that will provide a solid theoretical background. Systems dynamics will be used to analyse how different options in the eight Business Interoperability Parameters may impact the BIQMM and the overall performance regarding the ability to design and produce products in a lean, agile, resilient and green supply chain / ecosystem. Case studies in the automotive/manufacturing sectors and architecture, engineering and construction sectors will be conducted.
Partners: UNIDEMI, Delphi, Consulgal, Valorpneu Funding organization: Science and Technology Foundation (PT)
Main achievements: Considerable knowledge was acquired in three main areas: - Design of Business Interoperability Parameters in Lean, Agile, Resilient and Green industrial environments - Agent-based Simulation environment for modelling and analysis of Business Interoperability impact on performance of industrial networks and ecosystems - Discrete event simulation on performance of dyadic relationships according to their level of business interoperability.
