Designing a S2-Enterprise (Smart x Sensing) reference model Chapter in Scopus uri icon


  • ¬© IFIP International Federation for Information Processing 2014.The definition of the concept of S2-Enterprise (Smart x Sensing) reference model is presented. The S2 Reference Model (S2-RM) is targeted to assist in the system specification and development of future computer based systems, which support the creation of this concept. It is a hybrid reference model that includes Enterprise Integration Engineering Concepts and Interoperability models. The Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing or RM-ODP is used as the basis to define S2-RM because it allows the definition of the structure and characteristic of the Smart and Sensing systems in terms of five different views (enterprise, information, computational, engineering and technology). The importance of using reference models for the definition, design and implementation of S2-Enterprise systems is outlined. A pilot system has been developed using a micro-factory concept and a collaborative networked organization.
