Abstract

Creating a virtual model takes an individual approach. A company’s structure and organization must always be taken into account. The aim of this publication is to describe and analyze virtual factory concepts and models and their implementation as a means of improving company’s logistics and operation. The publication also analyses key factors that should be considered in order to choose optimal software package. Different methods and stages of creating a virtual factory model are presented. The interrelation between all parts of the model, considering internal and external aspects of company’s activity, was described and analyzed. Also, different ways of combining virtual factory models with efficient supply chains between companies were presented. The solution provided is a basis for creating a corporation and building an integrated supply chain management system, which is characterized by an integral set of market principles. Integrated supply chain management highlights the connection between the aims of company’s activity and those of supply chain. Virtual reality remains flexible and can be adapted to changing circumstances.
