KEY-PROBLEMS AND MULTI-SCREEN VIEW - A Framework to Perform the Aligment of Manufacturing IS

Virginie Goepp, François Kiefer

Abstract

In today highly competitive environment, the complete alignment of information systems (IS) that is to say not only with the strategy but also with the environment and with the uncertain evolution is crucial. For manufacturing IS these alignments are complex. The state of the art concerning IS alignment shows that the existing frameworks mainly concern managers and do not fit to the IS manufacturing context. On the one hand, B-SCP tends to operationalize these frameworks by coupling them to requirements engineering. However, only the alignment with the strategy is tackled. On the other hand, the dialectical analysis based approach of IS manufacturing development tries to integrate multiple alignments through the “multi-screen” view tool. However, the underlying concepts of this tool remain fuzzy. Therefore, this paper addresses the formalisation of the “multi-screen” view, in order to work out a framework for analysing mechanisms of multiple alignments of manufacturing IS. To do this, the contributions of coupling dialectics and “multi-screen” view to manufacturing IS are detailed through UML class diagrams. Moreover, to better grasp these contributions its similarities and differences with the B-SCP are outlined.
