The paper presents a flexible business application system development platform called FADP, which contains an enterprise process modeling system (EPMS) and an application system building environment (ASBE). System architecture and the key technologies of FADP are presented, including zero-time enterprise modeling based on components assembly techniques, zero-time enterprise model optimization based on dynamic process optimization techniques, component model-driven code generation (i.e., zero-time system construction), and cooperative work based on process model with flexible scheduling strategies. The proposed platform supports business process evolution in an enterprise’s lifecycle.
