Abstract

This paper presents a new context in the logistic field of organizations. This concept emerged due to the expansion of the application of the original concept proposed by the area of software development, in which the goal was to enable the exchange of information between different systems in such a way that no extra effort was needed. Therefore, this area of Information Technology (IT) is constituted by the standardization of programming language, commands, data storage format, among others. Eventually, principles that were already quite widespread in the sphere of IT gradually became used in different areas, untilit started being used amongst the business field. Thus, in order to make corporate processes interoperable, it has contributed to approach and facilitate the communication between companies based on some of the principles of the software field, such as standardization, form of communication, frequency of orders…etc. On the logistic field, which actually connects industrial and commercial companies through the flux of material and related information, the inoperability has by goal help on the resolution of problems regarding received and sent information management, fulfilling more rapidly the demands and opportunities of the market. In this context, we intend to define the part of interoperability on organizational competitiveness.
