Abstract

ERP systems become more complex and financial expenditures that are connected to the application of such systems increase. ERP systems consist of many software components which provide specific functionality. However, these ERP systems are designed as an all-in-one solution, often implementing functionality not needed. The paper presents the reference architecture of a federated ERP system which allows the distribution of ERP system components on the basis of Web Services. This architecture draws upon a hierarchical standardization model of data and service types. The model advances the reusability of data types and reduces the necessity of data transformation functions in business process descriptions.
