Abstract

The paper describes an on-going process of developing a generic, modular Enterprise Game. The game integrates conceptual, computational, visual and social enterprise models into a comprehensive ‘virtual enterprise’, in which the participants can jointly operate and experience business processes. Enterprise Game One focuses on the order-to-delivery process. Its increasing level of computerization and visualization towards a multimedia supported game is described, comparing the different game prototypes.
