ABSTRACT: Process planning of manufacturing enterprises is a kind of complicated process of knowledge-intensive, enterprises and team cooperative work. It requires to combine collaboration technology with process planning, namely collaborative process planning, which is the inevitable trend of the development of process planning for enterprises. In the face of the demands of the enterprises, the structure of collaborative process planning is analyzed. In addition, workflow technology is applied into the process of process planning for the implementation of process management. Also the implementation methods of synchronous collaborative technology are studied , which include data exchange method, data communication method, session management, and concurrency control method, in order to realize collaborative process planning and management, and meet the requirements of enterprise process informatization.
