The integration of configuration systems for supporting the supply-chain management of configurable products and services is still an open research issue. Current configurator approaches are designed for solving local configuration problems, but there is still no support for the integration of different configuration systems. In order to facilitate cooperative configuration, we employ configuration agents that are capable of managing requests and posting configuration subtasks to remote agents. For integrating the different knowledge representation formalisms of the configuration agents, we construct common ontologies by employing broadly-used configuration domain-specific modelling concepts
