Towards Enterprise Management Systems - A Generic and Flexible Information Representation Approach

Andreas Lux, Jörg Hess, Rudi Herterich

Abstract

This paper describes an enterprise management system which provides an integrated approach to tackle management relevant topics like business process management, quality management, audit management, internal risk and control management, enterprise architecture management, compliance management and so on within a single information system. The new term “enterprise management system (EMS)” is introduced for such a kind of management system. The core idea is a generic, yet flexible object model for any kind of relevant information, e.g. audit, risk, measure, process, process step, control. The different kind of information is related to each other by links with semantic expressiveness. The approach was successfully implemented in the enterprise management system DHC VISION, which is used today worldwide by medium- and large-sized enterprises.
