Companies are facing growing challenges motivated by globalization. A globalized market means that the number of companies with which they will need to compete to maintain or enlarge their market share is increased. Additionally, it also brings greater opportunities to conquer new markets and increase existing market shares, since the geographical, political and economical boundaries are gradually being removed. This paper proposes and illustrates the use of a platform prototype for enabling the evaluation and selection of attractive members for being included as members in a virtual organization. An extended simulation study is described and results obtained presented which show advantage of a used dynamic evaluation and selection model, based on a varying set of criteria.
