Course description and aims

A hundred years have 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 a good with several tens of components. Now it is time for applying engineering methodology with rigorous background for Enterprise Activities.

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

In this course, the instructor will explain the three main pillars such as Enterprise Ontology, Enterprise Architecture and Enterprise Governance in Enterprise Engineering. More specifically, representative methodologies called DEMO(Design & Engineering Methodology for Organizations), TOGAF and IT-CMF are explained.

Student learning outcomes

Students will have knowledge and skills for the three main pillars such as Enterprise Ontology, Enterprise Governance and Enterprise Architecturein Enterprise Engineering. More specifically, they will be able to use representative methodologies called DEMO(Design & Engineering Methodology for Organizations), IT-CMF and TOGAF in each discipline.
