The focus of enterprise collaboration of supply chain management, has changed from integrating and exchanging business information to integrating and managing business processes between business partners. However, the collaboration is difficult due to the inherent complexity such as diverse business processes and dynamic business environments. To settle these problems, a reference model based enterprise architecture framework for the collaboration of supply chains is proposed in this paper. The supply chain collaboration framework is composed of three reference models capturing the different views of supply chain collaboration: supply process reference model, service component reference model, and technology and standard reference model. As the framework adapts the OMG’s metadata architecture, the processes in the supply chain can be extended and integrated with other value chains, such as design chains, when it is necessary. Using the proposed framework, business managers can rapidly integrate and manage their business processes with their suppliers and customers.
