Enterprise integration engineering reference framework and toolbox uri icon

Abstract

  • Enterprise Integration Engineering (EIE) has emerged as an engineering discipline to re-structure the enterprise entities as integrated business processes that integrate human and technological resources to facilitate the knowledge sharing for better decision making. EIE is a complex task that requires applying different tools concerning strategic planning, performance management, modelling, simulation and business process management in order to properly engineer the enterprise entities. The present paper presents an EIE toolbox that aims to support enterprises in their decision making process and to provide different assisting tools to be applied on the components of the EIE Reference Framework proposed. Finally, a set of case studies are presented in order to demonstrate the utility of the EIE Reference Framework and its toolbox for strategic planning and enterprise decision making. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
