    Virtual enterprises and virtual supply chain concepts have been presented to propose solution for a seamless integration and data exchange between enterprises in the supply chain. Cloud computing technology enables centralized data storage and processing for operations and supply chain. This paper presents a prototype implementation of cloud-based virtual supply chain. The proposed solution offers functionality to initiate new sales orders for production, select needed resources, conduct planning and control activities and finally produce parts in virtual model of simulation.
