An Approach to Develop Flexible Systems with Organizational-interoperability Requirements

Diego Fuentealba, Kecheng Liu, Weizi Li

Abstract

This paper reports the initial state of a PhD project with an aim of discussing the definition of flexibility and the interoperability of IS in order to identify their key factors. These factors are significant to propose an assessment model, which can address the design. After a literature review, the method of this stage is the analysis of each definition, using a semiotic framework (Stamper, 1973) to identify the impacts of each definition between the organization and the IS.
