In order to fulfill economical constraints, enterprises are more and more involved in collaborative organizations. To develop such co-industry frameworks, a particular attention has to be paid on enterprises organisation and on the common information system. To provide the required agility level involved by such lean collaborative organizations, one may use a Service Oriented Architecture to support the information system infrastructure. Despite of its intrinsic flexibility and openness (given by a rather “free” service orchestration), such architecture may lack of inter-operability, mostly as far as industrial information systems are concerned. In this paper we propose an architecture to couple both management and production processes in a common service oriented approach so that different levels of interoperability can be supported.
