Enterprise Architecture Cybernetics for Global Mining Projects: Reducing the Structural Complexity of Global Mining Supply Networks via Virtual Brokerage
MetadataShow full item record
This paper applies the emerging paradigm of Collaborative Networks (CNs) to the global mining supply chains (introducing the new concept of 'global mining supply networks') and demonstrates that the efficiency of the global mining projects initiated and managed by the global mining supply networks can be limited by the complexity of the supply network itself. This paper then presents methods and theoretical examples to calculate and reduce the structural complexity of the global mining supply networks and the complexity of creation of the global mining projects through applying the virtual brokerages to the global mining supply networks.
