The successful existence of producing enterprises in global competition increasingly requires the range of customized products. Over the last few decades, growing complexity of these products has caused that at present, capital intensive and complex goods are predominantly consortium achievements of various companies. Each involved consortium member focuses on its own core competencies, and through collaboration they altogether create the necessary diversity of processing. By the latest since the nineties, competition does not any longer take place between single companies, but between contractor consortia (Boutellier 1999, p. 66). Hence, today, the ability to establish an excellent consortium is an important competitive advantage.
