The appearance of production supply networks can be considered as a response to changes in global markets. Networks can be seen as a step beyond the linear supply chain topography. However, when dealing with multiple organisations and multiple processes within a complicated network, identifying and locating a member that has responsibility for and/or competence in a particular part of the network can be a laborious, time-consuming process. Knowledge sharing aims to assist in solving this problem. The approach presented here is based on the application of such technologies as ontology and context management to knowledge sharing. The paper also presents the experience of applying the above approach to solving a real-life problem from the area of dynamic logistics as part of a flexible production network configuration. The considered problem takes into account a continuously changing problem environment and requires nearly real-time solving. Copyright © 2009 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
