The business environment throughout the world is currently undergoing rapid and far-reaching changes. Companies are restructuring the way they carry out business. They are analysing their processes and scrutinizing ways to make their systems more streamlined and competitive.
This book brings together the work of a number of leading experts from around the world, who present their ideas on the key issues that surround the area of business process re-engineering. This includes a review of business process re-engineering, its methodologies, tools and key benefits; presentations of new approaches to business process implementation; evaluation of the key software tools available for facilitating business process re-engineering analysis; a glimpse of the new technologies which are creating change and the need for business process re-engineering.
Each chapter in the book is a result of a presentation given at the Working Conference on Re-engineering the Enterprise, organized by the International Federation for information Processing and held in Galway, Ireland, in April 1995.
This book is essential reading for managers in the manufacturing and service industries; systems analysts, IT specialists and systems engineers, and post-graduate students of manufacturing, business and IT-related courses.

Industry Reviews

As the papers cover a number of different concepts and industrial applications, there are bound to be several chapters that will interest every reader...the book stimulates thought as to how what may be an abstract subject to some may actually be practicable in the real world. - Engineering Management Journal; ...there is much good material in the book. And the structure of the book allows for easy dipping-in. - Manufacturing Engineer; ...a valuable source of up-to-date information on BPR...a serious book, rich in content and providing both the novice and the more advanced reader with significant insights into modern business. - Studies in Informatics and Control; It appears that this book has achieved its objective of presenting engineering system approaches to the system designers. As such, it is a good book with easy reading for professionals; it discreetly provides some general information on how one would think of re-engineering a business system in a practical situation. - Bhaba R Sarker, Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering, Louisiana State University, USA
