title Virtual situation rooms: connecting people across enterprises for supply-chain agility

summary Agility and time-based manufacturing are critical success factors for today's manufacturing enterprise. To be competitive, enterprises must integrate their supply chains moreeffectively and forge close memberships with customers and suppliers more quickly. Consequently, technologies must be developed that enable enterprises to respond toconsumer demand more quickly, integrate with suppliers more effectively, adapt to market variations more efficiently and evolve product designs with manufacturing practicesmore seamlessly. The mission of the Extended-Enterprise Coalition for Integrated Collaborative Manufacturing Systems coalition is to research, develop, and demonstratetechnologies to enable the integration of manufacturing applications in a multi-company supply chain planning and execution environment. We believe real-time andasynchronous collaboration technology will play a critical role in allowing manufacturers to increase their supply chain agility. We are realizing our efforts through our VirtualSituation Room (VSR) technology. The primary goal of the VSR technology is to enhance current ad-hoc, limited methods and mechanisms for spontaneous, real-timecommunication using feature-rich, industry standards-based building blocks and network protocols. VSR technology is being designed to find and engage quickly all relevantmembers of a problem solving team supported by highly interactive, conversational access to information and control and enabled by business processes, security policies andtechnologies, intelligence, and integration tools.
