Drawing on the specialized strengths and knowledge available from numerous industrial and academic partners, the GLOBEMAN21 consortium is developing business practices and management techniques using simulation systems and modeling tools based on the information infrastructure for integrating the elements of an enterprise across geographic, cultural and time barriers.

The primary objectives of the GLOBEMAN21 project are: (1) creation of business processes: the methods, models, and technologies for the emerging global manufacturing environment (e.g., global life-cycle management and enterprise integration), (2) improvement in the quality and professionalism of manufacturing through industrial demonstration, and (3) presentation of the findings of GLOBEMAN21 so that the participants and other companies can radically improve their business processes and environments.
