In this chapter we introduce a conceptual framework for a new form of production system, which is unique from many perspectives. The proposed framework, which we refer to as Dispersed Network Manufacturing (DNM), is based on the creation of a network of plants that are electronically linked so that the participating members focus on their specialized tasks, yet also share their manufacturing and production resources to create a loosely structured and flexible enterprise.
