Integrated Enterprise Modeling

2000 , Mertins, K. , Jochem, R.

Success is not a static figure; it has to be constantly secured anew. The adaptability to changing competitive requirements is becoming a crucial factor of performance. The company of the future needs to be oriented towards integrated and model-based planning to allow open, flexible and changeable structures and business processes. This paper introduces a model-based method and a tool to adapt the necessary strategies and measures purposefully and continuously to the changing market requirements within the framework of corporate planning.

Architectures, Methods and Tools for Enterprise Engineering

2000 , Mertins, K. , Jochem, R.

In today's highly competitive global economy, the demand for high quality products manufactured at low costs with shorter cycle times has forced a number of manufacturing industries to consider various new product design, manufacturing, and management strategies. Recently, due to the rapid advances in Information Technology (IT), new paradigms have successively emerged such as CIM, JIT, lean manufacturing, Concurrent Engineering, Business Process Engineering and more Enterprise Engineering (EE). Enterprise modeling is currently in use either as a technique to represent and understand the structure and behavior of the enterprise, or as a technique to analyze business processes, and in many cases as support technique for business process reengineering. However, EM architectures and methods for Enterprise Engineering has also to cover the integration of quality, information system, cost , human and organizational aspects and to has to support the Enterprise Engineering process from goal and requirements definition up to implementation and operation [9]. This paper provides an overview of architectures, methods and tools for Enterprise Engineering. It then points out substantial results achieved so far as well as presents a methodology and a related tool in more detail, which supports all phases and aspects of Enterprise Engineering .

Methods and Tools for Enterprise Engineering

2000 , Mertins, K. , Jochem, R.

At the current state of technology, we can claim that Enterprise Modeling (EM) based and commercially available tools is now a reality in many large companies. Enterprise Engineering practices are developing and force enterprises to adopt systematic engineering procedures mainly based on models [9]. Enterprise modeling is currently in use either as a technique to represent and understand the structure and behavior of the enterprise, or as a technique to analyze business processes, and in many cases as support technique for business process reengineering. However, EM architectures and methods for Enterprise Engineering has also to cover the integration of quality, information system, cost , human and organizational aspects and to has to support the Enterprise Engineering process from goal and requirements definition up to implementation and operation. This paper provides an overview of architectures, methods and tools for Enterprise Engineering. It then points out substantial results achieved so far as well as presents a methodology and a related tool in more detail, which supports all phases and aspects of Enterprise Engineering .
