Corporate Performance Management (CPM) is a basic approach which examines the relationship between corporate performance and process optimization. How to successfully introduce CPM in practice is demonstrated through project reports from E.ON, British Telecom, Credit Suisse and Vodafone among others. The methods and tools presented here guarantee a continuous and automated monitoring of the corporate performance and enable Business Process Excellence to be permanently established in the company by company-internal and company-external benchmarking. The articles in this book focus on the use of the ARIS Controlling Platform developed by IDS Scheer.

Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) is the computerized handling of integrated operational processes between production planning and control, design, process planning, production, and quality assurance. The consistent application of information technology, along with modern manufacturing techniques and new organizational procedures, opens up great potential for rationalization by speeding up processes, thereby reducing stocks and improving product structure and delivery times. Following a comprehensive justification of the CIM integration principle, this book discusses the current state of applications and new demands arising from the integration principle as applied to the individual CIM components. The interfaces between business and technical information processing are considered in detail. The main emphasis, however, is on strategies for realization and implementation based on concrete experi- ence. The "Y-CIM information management" model, developed and tested at the author's institute, is presented as a procedural method for implementing CIM and demonstrated using up-to-date examples. In addition to the procedure for developing a CIM strategy, concrete sub-projects are developed which are directed at specific sector or enterprise structures. The survey of further CIM developments including design stage cost estimation, use of expert systems and inter-company process chains have proved to be effective CIM components since the first edition of this book and are now treated in the main text. Six German and five American industrial implementations are presented to illustrate the diverse areas of emphasis in the implementation sequence, and to indicate how CIM can be realized with currently available data processing tools.

Process-Driven SOA: Patterns for Aligning Business and IT supplies detailed guidance on how to design and build software architectures that follow the principles of business-IT alignment. It illustrates the design process using proven patterns that address complex business/technical scenarios, where integrated concepts of service-oriented architecture (SOA), Business Process Management (BPM), and Event-Driven Architecture (EDA) are required. The book demonstrates that SOA is not limited to technical issues but instead, is a holistic challenge where aspects of SOA, EDA, and BPM must be addressed together. An ideal guide for SOA solution architects, designers, developers, managers, and students about to enter the field, the book: Provides an accessible introduction to basic and more advanced concepts in process-driven SOA Illustrates how to manage the complexities of business aligned IT architectures with detailed examples and industry cases Outlines a step-by-step design process using proven patterns to address complex business/ technical scenarios Integrates SOA, BPM, and EDA into practical patterns promoting SOA 2.0 Describing how to synchronize parallel enterprise processes, the authors explain how to cope with the architectural and design decisions you are likely to encounter when designing and implementing process-driven SOA systems. The decisions are described in the form of software patterns to provide you with a practical guideline for addressing key problems using time-tested solutions.

The 1 st study edition is based on the 2nd hardcover edition of "Business Process Engineering". Several inconsistencies and minor modifications have been carried out. This study edition is a response to many requests for a budget-priced edition for students. This edition pursues a holistic descriptive approach that is based on the Architecture of Integrated Information Systems (ARIS) developed by the author. In addition to the data view, this approach also comprises the function, organization and control views, and encompasses all phases of the information system lifecyde - from analysis, requirements definition and design specification to implementation. The reference models develo ped here can thus serve as initial models for concrete applications. The illustrations are oriented strongly toward standard software in order to refIect their significance in terms of real-world representations. In par ticular, the discussion applies examples from the R/3 system from SAP AG and from the systems from IDS Prof. Scheer GmbH, build on concepts developed by the author. No "user description" of concrete systems is pro vided; instead, general foundations are laid in order to facilitate a deeper understanding of the application logic that is refIected in standard soft ware. An attempt is made to dose the gap between business administra tion theory and the "operating instructions'/ of standard software.

The ARIS architecture developed here is described in concrete terms as an information model within the entity-relationship approach. This information model, in turn, serves as the basis for the systematic and rational application of methods in the development of information systems. Furthermore, it provides the basis for storing the enterprise's application-specific data, organization and function models. The ARIS architecture constitutes a framework within which integrated applications can be developed, optimized and converted into EDP-technical implementations. At the same time, it demonstrates how economics can examine and analyze information systems so as to translate their contents into EDP-form.
