Abstract
Due to the growing competition in a global market, the importance of close co-operation - esp. between small and medium companies (SMEs) in the textile and printing industriy - is steadily increasing. This new upcomming business model is not adequately supported by existing PPC systems in that branches. The SCOOP project (Sophisticated Co-operation in Dynamic SME Networks based on Co-operative Planning and Control) addresses the problem of managing co-operation by distributed, capacity checked online planning along the supply chain, make or buy decision support and early warnings in dynamic SME networks using an innovative solution, based on peer to peer planning with local rough capacity models. Starting from a description of the current problems and the resulting requirements, this paper explains the methodology for distributed co-operative planning based on a local rough planning concept followed by a short look to the changing business model. However the most important goal for any successful co-operative planning is: Make it as simple as possible, while reaching the logistic goals.
