摘要：The virtual enterprise constructing process was completed with the help of an intelligent facilitate component. For the current requirements of modern enterprises, this study propose a framework supporting Virtual Enterprise dynamic formation based on workflow and multi-agents technologies. Four components are defined in this framework: Global Workflow Engine (GWE), Outsourcing Process Center (OPC), Collaboration Knowledge Base (CKB) and XML-Bridge and every component are described exactly in the article. The computation models and algorithm are also put forward to help realizing intelligent decisions of Multi-Agent System (MAS). Furthermore, a simple example is given to validity the proposed framework and the problems that remain to be tackle in future are also pointed out at the end. © 2011 Asian Network for Scientific Information.
