This paper aims to study the problem of cooperation in the extended enterprise case. This study focuses on the presentation of agent-oriented extended enterprise as a solution allowing enterprises to overcome the cooperation problem, in general, and conflict resolution, in particular. In this regard, this objective is defined by three aspects: organizational, reasoning and application. The organizational and reasoning aspects are presented through an overview of designing the extended enterprise by an agent-oriented approach via the proposed MAIS-E2 model (Multi-Agent Information System for an Extended Enterprise) and the proposed argument-based negotiation framework R2-IBN (Relationship-Role and Interest Based Negotiation) defined for MAIS-E2 model, respectively. Then, we focus mainly on the application aspect through the instantiation of MAIS-E2 model to the port application. These aspects are consolidated by the experimental validation via the developed prototype using JADE platform and experimental results with different cases in the port area.
