Because of the competitive market, companies have been feeling the need to adjust and rethink their systems, processes and organizational methods in meeting increasingly stringent demands and imposed at speed by the environment in which they are inserted. The delay in processing information in different parts of the company as well as with their suppliers represents a major challenge for supply chains. One way for companies to adjust and rethink their organizational processes, allowing them to assess the characteristics of their relations with partner companies in their productive processes, is through the company’s interoperability. This paper performs an integrative literature review checking the necessary attributes for implementing interoperability in companies. The motivation for the paper lies in vetting the necessary requirements for implementing and evaluating interoperability in order to contribute to the selection of suppliers with the ideal configuration of company environments in studying supply chain segmentation.
