In practice, many different people with backgrounds in many different disciplines contribute to the design of an enterprise. Anyone who makes decisions to change the current enterprise to achieve some preferred structure is considered a designer. What is problematic is how to use the knowledge of separate aspects of the enterprise to achieve a globally optimized enterprise. The synthesis of knowledge from many disciplines to design an enterprise defines the field of enterprise engineering. Because enterprise systems are exceedingly complex, encompassing many independent domains of study, students must first be taught how to think about enterprise systems. Specifically written for advanced and intermediate courses and modules, Design of Enterprise Systems: Theory, Architecture, and Methods takes a system-theoretical perspective of the enterprise. It describes a systematic approach, called the enterprise design method, to design the enterprise. The design method demonstrates the principles, models, methods, and tools needed to design enterprise systems. The author uses the enterprise system design methodology to organize the chapters to mimic the completion of an actual project. Thus, the book details the enterprise engineering process from initial conceptualization of an enterprise to its final design. Pedagogical tools available include: For instructors: PowerPoint® slides for each chapter Project case studies that can be assigned as long-term projects to accompany the text Quiz questions for each chapter Business Process Analyzer software available for download For students: Templates, checklists, forms, and models to support enterprise engineering activities The book fills a need for greater design content in engineering curricula by describing how to design enterprise systems. Inclusion of design is also critical for business students, since they must realize the import their decisions may have on the long-term design of the enterprises they work with. The book’s practical focus and project-based approach coupled with the pedagogical tools gives students the knowledge and skills they need to lead enterprise engineering projects.

The convergence of knowledge, technology, and human performance which comprises today's enterprise allows creative business process design. Thus, an organization can create new and innovative ways to service customers or to do business with suppliers and make itself a leader in its field. This capability relies on a successful strategy that integrates the enterprise. Enterprise Systems Integration, Second Edition continues to provide you with the business insight and the technical know-how that ensures successful systems integration. The book combines the perspectives, knowledge, and experience of more than 70 experts in the various areas that involve enterprise integration. Their expertise ranges from hands-on experience with technology and project management to the higher-level issues of business and management strategy. Each chapter examines an issue or technology relevant to today's enterprise. Collectively, these chapters span the range of enterprise computing and systems integration. Once armed with the strategy and technologies, you must successfully deploy ERP systems within budget and on time. In addition, you must be able to integrate them into the rest of the enterprise. Still, ERP software does not make up the full picture of today's enterprise. Legacy systems, e-commerce and other Web-based systems, client/server applications, networks and communications systems, data warehousing, and integrated databases enter into the mix. Enterprise Systems Integration, Second Edition paints a comprehensive picture of the technologies that comprise today's enterprise and shows you how to make them work together.
