To meet current market requirements and improve their competitive position, companies cooperate with their partners in value-adding networks. To exploit potential performance improvements, it is essential for companies to increasingly share Production Planning and Control-related data. Financial and non-financial incentives are beneficial to foster the inter-company exchange of such data. This paper proposes an approach for designing an application-specific incentive system framework, forcing information sharing in valueadding networks. The framework is based on a requirements analysis towards both value-adding networks and Production Planning and Control. The outcome of the approach is the possibility of deriving concrete incentive systems. The approach developed was applied and verified in a use case.
