In this work is presented a new concept of smart integration of elements in production systems, including suppliers, customers and production units, through Internet, web-access and wireless technology, called e-manufacturing. Integration problems are defined in the prevailing production systems and the need to create a model of production systems to new technologies and web-based applications for resource planning, enterprise (ERP), enabling integration between customers, systems, e-commerce providers, PLM and CAD to manufacturing process through Internet-based company structure. Are studied modern integration processes in industrial enterprises based on certain information technology and basic tools for the realization of production. Some are basic requirements for successful implementation of this industry in the new production philosophy.
