KNOWLEDGE-BASED REFINEMENT OF BUSINESS MANAGEMENT FUNCTIONS

Saulius Gudas, Audrius Lopata

Abstract

The paper deals with knowledge-based business process (BP) modeling. The enterprise management functions are considered from the control point of view – a formal structure of any enterprise management function is formally predefined as Elementary Management Cycle (EMC). The acquired from business domain BP model is represented as Workflow model. This empirical BP model is interactively enhanced and transformed step by step to business management function model using predefined knowledge. Transformations are handled by knowledge structure – meta-model of enterprise management function. Two types of logical gaps are identified by transformations of BP models from empirical one to knowledge-based. Modified types of WFM are declared and deployed for refinement of business management functions.
