The aim of the project SEMIRAMIS is to build an Information Control System for the remote management of SME's participating in Supply Chain Networks - the so called Virtual Enterprise. These Virtual Enterprises could be independent firms distributed in a given geographical region or enterprises located in different countries and continents
The Intranet which is an internal network connects many users on the base of Internet and Web technologies for the distribution and storage of data. Such technology perfectly solves the problems of communicating between geographically separated enterprises.
Bulgaria Great Britain
Basis of the system consists of :
on the server side: OS-Windows NT Server, database-Microsoft SQL Server, Internet Server- Internet Information Server
on the client side:- browser - Internet Explorer, Netscape Communicator
All this shows that the users need only a browser...:
The system is based on a new ideology: the specific unification of data generated within different functional modules into a single unified information resource .This provides an unified database, unified application ,unified user interface for the entire virtual enterprise.
On one hand the system has separate modules/ Accounting, Resources, People,.../ but on the other hand there are no strict boundaries between them.This permits sharing the information between the staff , customers, clients, venders.
Customers, business partners and remote offices can have access to specific data with either password protected or anonymous access.
The initial software testing of SEMIRAMIS is designed to work in geographically separated enterprises. Some of the information will be for internal use only- like Intranet information, while other information such as available inventory, can be accessed by customers and partners - opening the system to the world with Extranet.
Another software trial will be conducted at the Insitute of Computer and Communications Sciences - a typical Intranet for management of the Personal , Accounting and Inventory.
The project is due to be completed by June 2000.
