An enterprise reference scheme for integrating model based knowledge engineering and enterprise modelling

Long Papers
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 1319)


In recent years the demand on business process modelling (BPM) became apparent in many different communities. To provide a unifying framework for different needs on enterprise modelling we define an enterprise reference scheme and show how the development of knowledge based systems can be incorporated in such a framework. From this framework conclusions for tool support are drawn.
