Abstract

This paper proposes an enterprise architecture framework that al-lows modeling organizational components for reuse and co-development, emphasizing their traceability and alignment at both design and execution time. It focus on describing how entities in-teract in the context of business processes and relate to goals, actors and supporting systems. To facilitate the analysis of the architecture models, a set of five views that separate multiple organizational concerns is also introduced.
