Wang, Yingli and Naim, Mohamed Mohamed 2007. B2B e-business reference architecture for tailored logistics. International Journal of Services Operations and Informatics 2 (3) , pp. 253-266. 10.1504/IJSOI.2007.015327

Based on a literature review of previous research and case studies, this paper develops a conceptual model that traces and categorises different interorganisation information coordination and control mechanisms in the logistics domain. The conceptual model is referred to as the B2B E-business Reference Architecture (ERA). Studies in system architecture have largely focused on the technical perspective of e-business within an enterprise, with little research on the interorganisation perspective especially in the context of tailored logistics. Via the synthesis of literature, four fundamental architectures, dealing with different logistics scenarios, are proposed and discussed in detail with supporting case examples identified from the literature. This paper concludes by drawing implications for current research as well as highlighting future research opportunities.
