Viewing demand networks with intelligent products as digital business ecosystems
Date of this Version
The business digital ecosystem is based on autonomous proactive agents that act for their own advantage. This paper uses the ecosystem paradigm to develop a novel view of the behaviour of a demand network using a packet switching model of intelligent products. Products may have local intelligence and allocation of products to nodes in the demand network is based on optimal return for all parties using dynamic information.
