2014 (English)Book (Other academic)
Enterprises are such complex systems with their different organizational units and people working in the enterprise, with workflows and production pro- cesses, products and services offered to different customer groups, supplies and business partners, IT systems and production resources, etc. This book is about Enterprise Modeling, a technique that helps to capture the different elements and structures of an enterprise as well as to visualize the inter-dependencies between the elements. Enterprise Modeling can be used for a multitude of different purpos- es, like visualizing the current situation, analyzing the reasons for shortcomings or problems, developing strategies for business or IT, optimizing processes or setting up new co-operations with other enterprises. Enterprise Modeling offers a practical and flexible set of work procedures, tools and practices, which can be adapted to the situation at hand and to the pur- pose in focus. One of the main purposes of this book is to provide a “guide for ac- tion”, i.e. practical advice for how to address challenges in enterprises which can be solved or supported with Enterprise Modeling. The methods, tools and practic- es provided by the book are rooted in experience from many industrial modeling projects, but they also have a solid theoretical foundation from research in the field.
