In this short paper, we briefly reflect on the project LOISI (Logistics Optimization In Steel Industry), and the use of multiple enterprise models to support the analysis and management of resilience of production processes. We identify one shortcoming in the project with respect to planning of process routes. Based on reflection on the industrial case, research ideas based on process units and (enterprise) interoperability are briefly outlined.
