Overview

Once the decision has been made to introduce lean management, the task of actually reengineering the organization's business processes will involve months or even years of work and study. This book affords researchers, users and students valuable assistance in implementing new organizational concepts through the employment of new information processing techniques. The structure of the book follows the business processes of logistics, product development, information and coordination, and offers detailed examples of how outdated organizational structures can be reengineered. The portrayals are embedded in the proven "Architecture of Integrated Information Systems" (ARIS) and emphasize an holistic view of the problem through function, data and process models. At the same time, it shows how design specifications can be employed to translate requirements definitions into concrete system implementations.

Modern methods of describing information modeling lend a new dimension of precision to the subject matter of the book, and a wealth of graphical illustrations enhance the reader's understanding of the material. Examples from standard software systems (especially SAPR/3) demonstrate the book's down-to-earth practicality. Organizational concepts like lean management, concurrent engineering, trans-company process engineering and networked decentralization, as well as such modern information technology concepts as client/server environments, expert systems, trigger control, databases, etc., are discussed with a view to how they can be employed in actual practice, along with a well-founded theoretical background. The book is based upon the author's wide range of research and practical experience in the field of corporate organization and information processing. It is written for business administrators, engineers and information technology specialists. The book develops a comprehensive enterprise model, which serves as a reference model for engineering concrete business processes in industrial enterprises.
