Abstract We study how composition of enterprise models can represent the behaviour of an extended/virtual enterprise. Each enterprise manufactures discrete-parts products and is modelled with three concepts: product-related resources, processes and business goals (customer and purchase orders). Composition makes possible two forms of interaction between enterprises: matching customer and purchase orders and sharing processes which cross organisational boundaries. Models and their composition are represented in a formal notation.
