Abstract

This paper presents an application of logistics on dynamic, shared systems. The system is implemented on a platform which allows for distributed objects to be shared among nodes located at dispersed geographical locations. The paper first defines the roles of customer, manager/mediator and provider nodes, and next describes the interactions among them. A new extension of Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP) [1], that minimizes logistical cost is also introduced and discussed in detail. Distributed Composite Object (DCO) model [2] forms the basis of the execution environment of the application. The middleware which implements the DCO model provides the basic mechanisms of communication and solves data sharing issues.
