A truly integrated modeling and analysis environment, which facilitates multi-use and multi-tool models, is necessary for today's enterprises to meet the challenges of the competitive global marketplace. In this paper, we present an ongoing research and software implementation effort that addresses these challenges by automatically generating simulation and optimization models using the multi-perspective-information captured in an enterprise model set. We start by providing a detailed analysis of the major roadblocks to the broader use of enterprise modeling and analysis methods in industry today. We then define a solution methodology and our technical approach to addressing these roadblocks. A brief discussion of current activities and future research directions concludes the paper.
