عنوان مقاله [English]
Collaboration between firms that are operating in manufacturing industries is inevitable for various reasons. Nevertheless, this partnership is not always successful. One of the most important reasons for this is the lack of interoperability between them. Interoperability is discussed at different levels and several indicators are included. In the past, interoperability has been discussed greatly in the field of information technologies, but now it is also discussed from organizational and management perspectives. In this paper, a model to assess interoperability, which includes four factors including information and communication systems interoperability, organizational interoperability, cultural interoperability, and collaboration network interoperability with 17 variables is presented. This model was analyzed using data from manufacturing industries in Qazvin province using second order confirmatory factor analysis and LISREL program. The results show that the identified parameters are significantly relevant to their factors. In addition, after minor modifications, the model has a good fit with the data. The reliability of the model is calculated using composite relatively which represet good reliability.
