The rise of Industry 4.0 and the convergence of the digital and physical worlds increasingly, where not radically, transforms the production networks. The paper presents the preliminary results of a distributed collaboration framework developed with the aim to facilitate the cooperation of various production sites. The objective is to manage a network of manufacturers who can dynamically re-configure and share their resources within a pre-registered community and analyze how the cardinality of the federation influences both the cooperation and the global and local production KPI-s. The novelty of the concept is the combination of the agent-based control, the matching algorithm combined with the detailed digital simulation of the distributed production systems and the collaborative IT platform.
