Course description and aims

A hundred years has passed since Scientific Management was published by A.F.Taylor who is recognized as the originator of Industrial Engineering and Management. It is not the era of manufacturing goods with several tens of components. Now it is time for applying engineering methodology to Enterprise Activities.

In our department, we have been fostering students who can use ICT from users' viewpoints, more concretely, to have a vision to use ICT which supports business activities from the viewpoint of Enterprise Engineering. In this course, we will focus on Enterprise Ontology that is one of the key pillars in Enterprise Engineering.

We will explain the representative methodology called DEMO(Design & Engineering Methodology for Organizations)in Enterprise Ontology. Students are supposed to understand the concept and learn how to apply it for target systems with a certain size.

Student learning outcomes

Students will be able to understand the concept of DEMO that is the representative methodology in Enterprise Ontology and apply it for target systems with a certain size.

Keywords
