In an increasingly networked global marketplace, products and services are seldom created in isolation and are instead being realized through strategic and dynamic partnerships between suppliers, contract manufacturers, and customers. Superior design-supplier-manufacturing decisions are critical to the survival of enterprises that seek to compete in this environment. A novel evolutionary decision support framework (coevolutionary virtual design environment) particularly suited to distributed network-enabled organizations is introduced. In this framework an electronic interchange of design, supplier, and manufacturing information facilitates concurrent, network distributed decision-making based on evolutionary computation. The approach utilizes distributed evolutionary agents and mobile agents as principal entities that support a network-efficient exploration of planning alternatives in which successive populations systematically select planning alternatives that reduce cost and increase throughput.
