Integrated Electronic Commerce: An International Laboratory for Business-to-Business Integration

“Integrated Electronic Commerce: An International Laboratory for Business-to-Business Integration,” In Global Production Management, Kai Mertins, Oliver Krause, and Burkhard Schallock (Editors). Boston: Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1999 (with P. Chang, P. Litvak, P. Norton, R. Sommer, A.J.C. Trappey, and C. Trappey). Critical issues are emerging in the establishment of virtual environments for international business-to-business e-commerce. One issue is whether all parties (primes and suppliers) can manage extended relationships with information provided by integrated standard software. The issue is more complicated with the inclusion of international trading partners. The joint industry/university laboratory that is described in this paper was designed to explore these complex issues. This paper describes the project, our shared international laboratory, the planned and completed experiments, and interesting results that have been uncovered while executing the project.
