In this dissertation, we discussed the Supply Chain Management application integration in the environment of E-Business and presented a framework of it. SCM is a new operational and production mode, which enables enterprises to survive, develop and expand in the on-changing environment with intensive competition. SCM aims at achieving the supply chain coordination and maximizing the total profit of the whole supply chain on the basis of integration and optimization of enterprise resources. Meanwhile, modern SCM can not develop without the aid of IT as a leverage and ERP, CRM as well as SCM are typical Management Information Systems in the field of SCM, which, on one hand, greatly improves the efficiency of Supply chain, on the other hand, has lowered the total profit of the whole supply chain because of many information islands existing within and among enterprises. Moreover, E-Business operating with the aid of Internet has provided a brand new operation model for SCM. Therefore, it is of great practical importance to achieve SCM application integration esp. for supply chain coordination. In the technological perspective, SCM application integration is based on Enterprise Application Integration (EA1) and the main technology related is Distributed Object Technology, XML and Web Service. According to the characteristics and requirements of intra-enterprise EAI and inter-enterprise EAI, we selected RMI and XML+Web service respectively for the two categories of integration and designed the typical interfaces for the integration, which forms a framework appropriate for SCM application integration both within one enterprise and among different enterprises.
