A Review of Enterprise Modelling Studies

Lerina Aversano, Maria Tortorella

Abstract

This paper aims to provide a basis for the improvement of enterprise modelling research through a review of previous work published in literature. The review identifies 198 enterprise modelling papers in 49 journals and classifies the papers according to: research topic, modelling approach, research approach, study context and type of validation set. A database of these enterprise modelling papers is provided to ease the identification of relevant research results. The review results are combined with other knowledge and provide a support for modelling strategy recommendations for future enterprise modelling research, including: identification of relevant papers within a carefully selected set of journals when completeness is essential; need of conducting more studies on modelling methods commonly used from the software industry; and increase the awareness of how the properties of the case studies impact on the results when evaluating modelling methods.
