This work explores the newly created discipline of enterprise integration, which is a business-oriented synthesis of many disciplines such as management science, information technology, production management and artifical intelligence. The major topics discussed include: the needs of industry and the first results using enterprise integration methodologies; making methodologies easier to interpret by discussing them as procedures; enterprise modelling languagesand their theoretical backgrounds; reference architectures as a framework for the life-cycle of an enterprise's transformation; enterprise engineering CASE/CAEE tools that allow computer simulation, analysis and workflow enactment of enterprise models; contribution of distributed artificial intelligence to the design of agile, competitive enterprises. This book should be useful reading for academics, research students, consultants, business process analysts, information technology managers and manufacturing management experts working in the area of enterprise integration. This book should be of interest to academics and research students; IT managers; software engineers; manufacturing engineers; project managers; control engineers; consultants; business process analysts.
