Enterprise Evolution with Molecular Computation

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 269)


Enterprise life cycle theory is the most direct business growth study of enterprise development. This theory divides SMEs’ (small and medium-size enterprises) life into different stages, and do research respectively in each stage on the growth of them. It holds that companies are like biological organisms, they also have the growth from birth to death, from gloom to doom. It makes an analog of SMEs’ stages development combined with the core concept of membrane computing and the knowledge of biology. It is on a living point of view to analyze the growth of an enterprise, but also a continuation of the theoretical research on bionic-evolution theory. The discussion on how to extend the life of the enterprise and how to make it grow as longevity enterprise is of profound practical effect to the cultivation of domestic life-oriented enterprises.
