Welcome to OOEM

[edit | edit source]

This research project is about defining and discussing a modelling notation capable of comprehensively describing enterprises within a single, integrated model.

This project page is under construction.

The following is an incomplete set of material I have collected to start with. It mainly originates from my research activities within my company during development of an execution engine for such an enterprise model. I'm interested in moving these activities into a public community here.


[edit | edit source]

An enterprise model comprises at least

  • business structure: organization and relations
  • business things: i.e. objects
  • business dynamics: processes
  • business location: spaces (of all kinds)


[edit | edit source]
  • Management: an OOEM model shall be, as far as necessary, usable by business managers to organize a complex and large enterprise
  • Employers: an OOEM model shall be, as far as necessary, easily usable by employees to ease and coordinate their everyday work in a friendly manner
  • IT: an OOEM shall be executable - i.e. appropriate software systems can be created automatically from it (including core systems, user interfaces and business processes)
  • Enterprise Architect: it is not expected that any of the above stakeholders has or is able to understand the complete model, this is the task of the Enterprise Architect
