How to engineer an enterprise: Design and Construction modelling
The foundation of Enterprise Engineering is: Communication between people, about a product.
- Enterprise Engineers start from the well-defined strategy of an enterprise. From the strategy they model the communication and interactions between the enterprise and its “customers” in mathematical models.
- From the interactions between the enterprise and its customers they design mathematical models that specify the construction of the enterprise and its daily operation. The core of this enterprise construction model are transactions were human actors communicate about their production tasks. A communication “act” of an actor, for example “I promise to do this task”, and “I accept the production of this task”; creates a binding commitment of this actor. If one actor communicates “I request this product” and the other actor communicates “I promise to deliver this product”, then a legally binding contract has been created.
- The construction model of an enterprise is the basis for clear descriptions and assignment of tasks, competences, authorities, responsibilities to individual human actors. As a result, each individual actor is fully aware of his role in the enterprise, and the role if his co-workers. There is the optimum of transparency in the enterprise.
The organization benefits greatly from this rigorous approach and full transparency.
- The possibilities for confusion and mistakes are minimized.
- The organization becomes more flexible and agile.
- Compliance to regulation becomes easier to prove
