The convergence of object technology and business systems methodologies has led to a new discipline: business engineering. The goal of business engineering is to improve the performance of an enterprise through formal modeling, the application of appropriate concepts, best practices, and information technology. Written for practitioners interested in business systems and software applications, this book fuses object technology, workflow, data warehousing, and distributed system concepts into a coherent model that has been successfully implemented worldwide. Enterprises using these concepts are well-positioned to thrive in the emerging global business arena. Enterprise Modeling with UML describes specific methods for modeling large, complex, and adaptable enterprise systems, using the Unified Modeling Language (UML) to illustrate its concepts and components. Enterprise Modeling with UML addresses in detail the four key elements of an enterprise model: purpose, processes, entities, and organization.Written from a business perspective rather than technical standpoint, the book covers such vital topics as: *Formalizing business concepts, models, and components *Creating and communicating the value of an enterprise *Designing, scheduling, tracking, and automating processes *Describing business entities in organizational contexts *Modeling hierarchical and networked organizations and coordinating such organizations to form value chains *Building adaptable enterprise systems from reusable software components 0201433133B04062001
