This research project aims to provide a common methodology for constructing a virtual supply chain as a field to determine more appropriate action for each component enterprise. Describing method for an enterprise model including behavior description and sharing them as an enterprise e-catalog have been proposed. In this paper, the agent program codes for each enterprise are automatically generated from the retailer, manufacturer and supplier models selected from the e-catalogs, and the virtual supply chain is configured as a multi-agent system by connecting them. Test simulations are performed to verify whether this virtual supply chain operates correctly and produces appropriate results.
