Due to the trend towards concentrating on one's own core competencies and reducing the vertical range of manufacture, collaborative supply chains are increasingly developing.
This increases the number of business partners who are involved in the end-to-end process in the entire supply chain. At the same time, customer expectations for tailor-made solutions and products with short delivery times are expanding. The constant change in a globalized economic system with shortergettduct life cycles and faster product launch times. It requires dynamic IT processes in highly networked logistics systems that are easily changeable and a unique fit to the company.
Coupling the different IT systems between the partners involved in the respective supply chain is the major challenge. Most companies have an ERP or merchandise management system (possibly connected to production control systems), which, as a rule, cannot be changed dynamically at its core. Furthermore, there are additional requirements with regard to data integration with other partners and their IT systems.
