Implementation of Agile Supply Chain Information Integration System in Manufacturing Industry Based on Service-Oriented Architecture and Web Service
Construction of agile supply chain enables enterprises to share their process, application and data in different regions, different computing environments and different applied systems. We studied data flow between enterprises in steel manufacturing industry supply chain and made analysis of supply chain nodes, data transfer and interactive process then put forward key services that need to be provided between different nodes, identified service agents and established inter-service interaction model .Finally, we implement the agile supply chain information integration system in manufacturing industry based on service-oriented architecture and web service ,which provides interfaces of the standard data structures and communication methods between manufacturers and external systems. Test data demonstrate that this solution makes the information exchange between systems of enterprises easier, flexible and extensible.
