Abstract: Recent years have seen dramatic advances in communication and information technology. These technological innovations, together with the intensified global competition, have subsequently triggered the worldwide restructuring of the manufacturing sector, causing a fundamental shift of paradigm from mass production to one that is based on fast-responsiveness and flexibility. A new pattern of production mode is on the horizon. There is no doubt that the Internet has become the world wide information platform for the exchange of all kinds of information. Intranet, which is based on Internet technology but being used within an organization, has also become a popular platform for data sharing. The advances in Intranet/Internet technology have significantly influenced the way activities are carried out among the manufacturing systems. As such, the proper deployment of this technology in the value chain of production is an essential issue to be addressed. This chapter describes the techniques and applications of Intranet/Internet technology that can be used to improve the operations among manufacturing systems.
