In this paper we present a perspective on enterprise modelling which is emerging under the Enterprise project. In doing so we identify features of enterprise models and suggest how the existence of ontologies can help in their construction and maintenance.
This section includes our working definition of enterprise modelling and an overview of the Enterprise project. In Why Build Enterprise Models? we present the main reasons for building enterprise models; in Features of Enterprise Models we identify some features of enterprise models; in Ontologies for Enterprise Modelling we suggest how ontologies might be useful in enterprise modelling and in Support for Enterprise Modelling we show a high level view of a toolset for enterprise modelling.
