In this paper a collaborative WEB platform is proposed to implement the collaborative manufacturing environment. This is to offer maximum interoperability between all the distributed participants of a Collaborative Manufacturing Network (CMN) and their management information systems. Furthermore, this paper develops a simple framework to help to understand the collaboration that is afforded by Web 2.0 applications. The proposed framework is used to examine how production of agents can create, share and exchange experiences on diagnosis and resources failures with each other to have new ideas or useful information for the decision-making. The agent-based approach provides a collaborative WEB interface to facilitate the remote interaction with human users involved in the risk management process. The global collaborative decision model is applied to the spunlace nonwovens production industry.
