The importance of collaboration has increased in supply networks; and thus, the number of so called non-hierarchical manufacturing networks (NHN). When establishing collaborative processes appear a number of barriers that companies must face. This paper proposes a roadmap, NHNmap, to support researchers on the migration process towards the long-term vision to establish collaborative relationships in NHN. This NHNmap phases are briefly described and depicted in a chart in order to identify the roadmap time plan.
