This paper identifies some of existing problems associated with collaboration among SMEs of the same network. Concretely, the problems are focused on Non-Hierarchical manufacturing Networks (NHN). The research objective is to identify the most relevant problems existing when SMEs have to deal with decentralized decisions (DDM). For this purpose, a(More)
Collaborative networks that emerge as consortia to deal with new market opportunities consist of different autonomous entities. Each one holds a set values and defines its own strategies in order to deal with its defined objectives.

The importance of collaboration has increased in supply networks; thus, the number of so called non-hierarchical manufacturing networks (NHN) has also increased. A roadmap to help SMEs to participate and create collaborative non-hierarchical networks is developed. Specifically, the methodology carried out in the NHNmap is described along the paper.
This paper provides a methodology to support researchers in the identification of SMEs needs encountered when establishing collaborative processes within non-hierarchical manufacturing networks. Furthermore, the methodology also determines the needs when non-hierarchical networks internationalise their processes and operations to overcome globalisation and(More)
Collaborative networks research has increased over the last years due to the advantages experienced by the enterprises that establish collaboration. In this paper, a set of relevant collaborative processes are identified in the literature and analysed considering their specific application in non-hierarchical manufacturing networks (NHN).
