Abstract

The process-oriented business management requires an appropriate engineering environment for the design and organization of the business processes and their supporting systems. Support systems should be integrated in order to avoid the discontinuity in business processes they support in a changing environment. In other words, enterprise computing requires appropriate methods to implement flexible business process solutions and agile information system to support them. The aim is to design and control the organizational structures in a very flexible way so they can rapidly adapt to changing conditions. The best way, from our point of view, is to ensure the modelling of business processes from organizational objectives they allow to reach to the software components included in their support systems. In this paper, we propose a framework that allows us to evaluate capacities of methods to facilitate the engineering of changing business processes.
