Abstract

This chapter describes the key elements in the application of GERAM to the analysis of the virtual enterprise of a ship maintenance consortium, the ANZAC ship alliance. The ANZAC ship project built 10 ANZAC class guided missile frigates for the Royal Australian Navy and the Royal New Zealand Navy. The ships have a service life of 25 to 30 years in which changes are required to keep up-to-date with latest warfare. In this study, VERA was adopted as the generic enterprise reference architecture to guide the systematic study of the anatomy of the virtual enterprise. The issues of creating and managing the logistics and information infrastructure that are necessary to support successful operation of the virtual enterprise are examined. Particular models were created according to GERAM for the timely support of the projects as the virtual enterprise grew.
