Abstract:The use of inter-enterprise architecture (IEA) facilitates the generation of collaborative networks (CNs) since its tools guide enterprises step by step in the implementation of collaborative processes, in both strategic and tactical levels. At the strategic level, companies that make up CN begin the process of defining the collaboration domain, teams, people, objectives, processes, among others, to achieve common goals. At the tactical level, in a specific context of hierarchical production planning (HPP), companies could find advantage in using of decision-support systems (DSSs) that allow the management of unexpected events that affect production planning. This paper describes the main elements of the IEA proposed: framework, methodology and modelling language. To validate the correct definition of the different elements of our proposal and their relation with one another, we proposed a relationship meta-model.
