Summary Towards to development of regional economy, interconnection of companies is very significant, as well as in vertical, so as in horizontal and networked cooperation. Competence cells are innovative self advancing companies based on knowledge and ready for cooperation. They are based on new technologies and are capable of learning and changing. Competence cell is part of regional network that contains: • function (fundamental competences and vision), • dimensions (goals, resources), • structure (specialization and coordination). To achieve its efficiency, it is necessary to introduce new technologies with suitable organizational structure as well as motivated and skilled staff. This project is limited to technologically-organizational optimizing of competence cell. Aim of this project is development of new business model that will enable realization of interrelationship between suppliers and users. Development of models that will simulate sudden business opportunities determines optimal configuration of processes, abilities and resources as well as instantaneous data regarding actual measures of implementing such configuration. Following hypothesis are made: 1. Business model based on informatively-communicational association, unambiguous rules and thrust, increases chances of small and medium-sized company’s subsistence. 2. Large companies increase their competitiveness with development of their core competences i.e. outsourcing of other functions and connecting into production networks with small and medium-sized companies. Following results are expected: • Competence cell model for tool production, from production idea trough shaping of product (3D) and fast prototype obtaining, to its machining on CNC high-speed milling machine. • Development of online software which analyses and configures specific products. • Papers publication in conference proceedings and international science magazines. • Writing of at least three doctor dissertations and several graduate papers. Research results would be checked in large and medium-sized companies as well as in several small tool making companies. Aiming at enhancement of industrial region competence, development of new products and appliance of modern technologies, it is necessary to crate network between industrial and service companies as well as between science-researching and educational institutions. Therefore this project can be significant for region development based on knowledge.
