Abstract

The use of an integrated modeling approach by the decision makers to study the enterprise as a whole from multiple perspectives is discussed. The enterprise modeling is concerned with the representation and specification of various aspects of the enterprise operations such as functional and operational. The several modeling tools are present in the market which allows the use of extant modeling methods in a standalone manner with minimal integration across methods. The next generation of ERP II systems must integrate enterprise modeling and analysis seamlessly so that enterprise models can exchange information with the ERP system as needed.
