Chapter VII discussed how traditional Internet-based technologies could support Agile/Virtual Enterprise integration. Chapter VIII presented the specification of the Market of Resources as an enabler of this organizational model and Chapter IX introduced its development. This chapter discusses the ability of the Market of Resources to cope with the requirements of Agile/Virtual Enterprises and compares its performance with the performance of traditional Internet-based technologies. It starts with the explanation of the cost-and-effort analysis undertaken, based on the cost-and-effort models introduced in Chapters VII and VIII, followed by the parameterization of this models, by identifying its time constants. This chapter presents a comparative study of performance between the traditional Internet-based tools and the Market of Resources, based on the results of an analytical simulation of the cost and effort of the Market of Resources compared with the utilization of traditional tools in the support of A/VE integration. Finally it identifies the solution space where the Market of Resources presents more efficiency in A/VE integration.
