    Collaborative Teaching of ERP Systems in International Context Enterprise Information Systems2015Ingår i: ICEIS 2015 - Proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems, Volume 1, Barcelona, Spain, 27-30 April, 2015., SciTePress, 2015, s. 196-205Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    ERP systems are characterized by a high degree of complexity what is challenging to replicate in the classroom environment. However, there is a strong industry demand for students having ERP training during their studies at universities. This paper reports a joint effort of University of Rostock and Riga Technical University to enhance introductory ERP training by introducing an internationalization dimension in the standard curriculum. Both universities collaborated to develop an international ERP case study as an extension of the SAP ERP Global Bikes Incorporated case study. The training approach, study materials and appropriate technical environment have been developed. The international ERP case study is performed at both universities where students work collaboratively on running business processes in the SAP ERP system. Students’ teams at each university are responsible for business process activities assigned to them and they are jointly responsible for completing the process. The case study execution observations and students’ evaluations suggest that the international ERP provides a good insight on the real-life challenges associated in using the ERP systems in the international context.

    International ERP teaching case: Design and experiences2015Ingår i: Enterprise information systems: 17th International Conference, ICEIS 2015, Barcelona, Spain, April 27-30, 2015, revised selected papers, 2015, s. 131-150Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are among the most widely used large-scale information systems. Industry and students in IT-related subjects expect that ERP training is part of the studies during university education. However, traditional teaching materials use somewhat simplified multi-role and cross-organizational processes which do not fully reflect reality in enterprises, for example with respect to role-based permissions or coordination challenges in international organizations. This paper reports on an attempt to extend the SAP ERP GBI case study towards an international dimension. For this purpose an international ERP case study was developed which is presented in the paper with its didactical approach, the technical way how to implement the case study in SAP, and the teaching environment. The work is a joint effort by University of Rostock and Riga Technical University which has a focus on enhancing introductory ERP training for study programs in information technology and business informatics. One of the key features of the international ERP case study is that students of both universities work collaboratively on running business processes in the SAP ERP system. Evaluations suggest that the students appreciate the case study as suitable means to get an insight in real-life challenges connected to ERP use in an international context.

    Value-based and context-aware selection of software-service bundles: A capability based method2017Ingår i: Complex Systems Informatics and Modeling Quarterly, ISSN 2255-9922, nr 10, s. 21-37Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In many application areas, vendors offer to their clients combinations of software products and services, which can be considered as software-service bundles. The clients select a combination of software product and associated service best suited to their individual requirements and circumstances. The bundle usually has to be configured by the vendor to fit the specific situation of the client. When circumstances change, the software-service bundle or its configuration need adaptation. The article proposes a method helping clients to select the most appropriate combination or configuration. The method is based on information sharing between the vendor and client and also supports the continuous improvement of the solution in response to changing circumstances. The method applies principles and techniques of the Capability Driven Development to specify performance objectives and contextual factors affecting delivery of a software-service bundle. Application of the method is shown using an illustrative case of a data processing service from utility industries.

    SPARQL Query Builders: Overview and Comparison2016Ingår i: Joint Proceedings of the BIR 2016 Workshops and Doctoral Consortium co-located with 15th International Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research (BIR 2016), Prague, September 14 - 16, 2016. / [ed] Björn Johansson, Filip Vencovský, CEUR-WS , 2016, Vol. 1684Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The SPARQL query language has been proposed as a simple language for querying graph-structured data on the Semantic Web. However, users have to write queries that must conform to the SPARQL syntax. This requirement might be alleviated using a SPARQL query builder that suggests relevant parts of the query. But, up to now, only a few basic comparisons of such tools exist. The goal of this paper is to develop such a comparison as the result of a structured literature analysis.

    Multi-touch Table or Plastic Wall?: Design of a Study for the Comparison of Media in Modeling2016Ingår i: BIS 2016 International Workshops, Leipzig, July 6-8, 2016. / [ed] Witold Abramowicz, Rainer Alt, Bogdan Franczyk, Springer, 2016, Vol. 263, s. 123-135Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    An important aspect of participatory enterprise modeling is the work in a group. However, does the collaboration of the group members change depending on which medium is used to generate the models? Are there for example differences in the group’s behavior when working with a plastic wall, similar to a whiteboard, or with a multi-touch table? Based on the state of research and theoretical foundations of group work as well as previous research, relevant research issues are raised and an experimental design will be described in order to examine possible differences in the group work depending on the medium. Relevant aspects will be forms of cooperation, i.e. verbal and nonverbal contributions of the participants, but also territorial behavior and group performance.

    The State of Ontology Pattern Research: A Systematic Review of ISWC, ESWC and ASWC 2005–20092010Ingår i: Workshop on Ontology Patterns: Papers and Patterns from the ISWC workshop / [ed] Eva Blomqvist, Vinay K. Chaudri,Oscar Corcho, Valentina Presutti, Kurt Sandkuhl, 2010, s. 5-17Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    While the use of patterns in computer science is well established, research into ontology design patterns is a fairly recent development. We believe that it is important to develop an overview of the state of research in this new field, in order to stake out possibilities for future research and in order to provide an introduction for researchers new to the topic. This paper presents a systematic literature review of all papers published at the three large semantic web conferences and their associated workshops in the last five years. Our findings indicate among other things that a lot of papers in this field are lacking in empirical validation, that ontology design patterns tend to be one of the main focuses of papers that mention them, and that although research on using patterns is being performed, studying patterns as artifacts of their own is less common.

    A survey on challenges of semantics application in the Internet of Things domain2017Ingår i: Applied Computer Systems, E-ISSN 2255-8691, Vol. 21, nr 1, s. 13-21Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The Internet of Things (IoT), a global Internet-based system of computing devices and machines, is one of the most significant trends in the information technology area. An accepted unified communication approach would be a prerequisite for its mass adoption. Semantic technologies (Semantic Web) have been advocated as enablers of unified communication. However, while there are particular advancements in research on application of Semantic Web in the IoT domain, the dynamic and complex nature of the IoT often requires case specific solutions hard to be applied widely. In the present survey, the semantic technology challenges in the IoT domain are amalgamated to provide background for further studies in the use of semantic technologies in the IoT.

    Finding patterns in biochemical reaction networks2016Ingår i: PeerJ PrePrints, ISSN 2167-9843, Vol. 4, artikel-id e1479v2Artikel i tidskrift (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Computational models in biology encode molecular and cell biological processes. Many of them can be represented as biochemical reaction networks. Studying such networks, one is often interested in systems that share similar reactions and mechanisms. Typical goals are to understand the parts of a model, to identify reoccurring patterns, and to find biologically relevant motifs. The large number of models are available for such a search, but also the large size of models require automated methods. Specifically the generic problem of finding patterns in large networks is computationally hard. As a consequence, only partial solutions for a structural analysis of models exist. Here we introduce a tool chain that identifies reoccurring patterns in biochemical reaction networks. We started this work with an evaluation of algorithms for the identification of frequent subgraphs. Then, we created graph representations of existing SBML models and ran the most suitable algorithm on the data. The result was a list of reaction patterns together with statistics about the occurrence of each pattern in the data set. The approach was validated with 575 SBML models from the curated branch of BioModels. We analysed how the resulting patterns confirm with expectations from the literature and from previous model statistics. In the future, the identified patterns can serve as a tool to measure the similarity of models

    MAPPER Collaboration Platform for Knowledge-Intensive Engineering Processes2010Ingår i: BIS 2010, Berlin: Springer , 2010Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper presents a collaboration platform with model-based configurable services. It is a part of a more general approach developed by the EU project MAPPER that enables distributed collaboration over adaptive knowledge-intensive engineering processes. In a model-configured infrastructure, active knowledge models (AKMs) of products and processes become the basis for user-composed services, tools and methodologies available to users in customisable workplaces. A multi-layered architecture that offers a powerful means for configuration of services for particular application areas has been described. The presented approach and the collaboration platform have been experimented with in a collaborative engineering use case in electronic industry that integrated two dispersed SMEs. Experiences learned are summarized.

    Abstract [en]

    In times of dynamic markets, enterprises have to be agile to be able to quickly react to market influences. Due to the increasing digitization of products, the enterprise IT often is affected when business models change. Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) targets a holistic view of the enterprise’ IT and their relations to the business. However, Enterprise Architectures (EA) are complex structures consisting of many layers, artifacts and relationships between them. Thus, analyzing EA is a very complex task for stakeholders. Visualizations are common vehicles to support analysis. However, in practice visualization capabilities lack flexibility and interactivity. A solution to improve the support of stakeholders in analyzing EAs might be the application of visual analytics. Starting from a systematic literature review, this article investigates the features of visual analytics relevant for the context of EAM.

    How Digital Transformation affects Enterprise Architecture Management - a case study2018Ingår i: International journal of information systems and project management, ISSN 2182-7796, E-ISSN 2182-7788, Vol. 6, nr 3, s. 5-18Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, cyber-physical systems and other recent technological innovations offer new opportunities for enterprises in the context of Digital Transformation (DT) but also cause new challenges for Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM), which traditionally deals with enterprise-IT planning and coordination. Based on an industrial case of a power garden products manufacturer that is exploring potentials and facing challenges in DT, this article investigates the integration of product-IT into EAM. Product-IT includes the embedded IT-systems in physical products and services, components for operations, maintenance or evaluation purposes. In this article we discuss product-IT and enterprise-IT integration in the context of EAM observed in the industrial practice. The main contributions are (1) positioning of the product-IT in the field of EAM, and (2) identification of the challenges from real-world case regarding integration of product-IT into EAM.

    Product-IT and Enterprise-IT integration in enterprise architecture management - Methodological perspective2018Ingår i: BIR-WS 2018 BIR Short Papers, Workshops and Doctoral Consortium: Joint Proceedings of the BIR 2018 Short Papers, Workshops and Doctoral Consortiumco-located with 17th International Conference Perspectives in Business Informatics Research (BIR 2018) / [ed] Jelena Zdravkovic, Jānis Grabis, Selmin Nurcan, Janis Stirna, CEUR-WS , 2018, Vol. 2218, s. 140-149Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) is a practice for planning and governance of IT assets in an organization. Today, in the era of digital transformation, new digital opportunities and technological advancements are changing how companies create products and deliver services. Enormous potential for business value generation lies in product-IT - built-in software and digital services enhancing physical products. In this paper we discuss the need to approach product-IT and enterprise-IT in an integrated manner based on the findings from an exploratory case study. Particularly, we outline how to integrate these two in the context of EAM, considering the challenges that traditional EAM is facing in relation to the digital transformation. The main results of the paper are a set of high-level requirements for EAM that would enable product-IT and enterprise-IT integration. These requirements can serve as a basis for future development of methodological support in the outlined context.

    Business Community Creation Based on Competence Management2008Ingår i: Collaboration and the Knowledge Economy: Issues, Applications, Case Studies / [ed] Paul Cunningham and Miriam Cunningham, Amsterdam: IOS Press , 2008, s. 1085-1092Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Business communities are networked organisations with members from different industries aiming at coordinating their activities for production of the final product/service. Forming a network of companies requires “understanding” of the different companies’ organisational competences. Competence management can help solving this task. This paper starts with presenting our earlier work in competence management projects aimed at supporting creation of business networks. Three cases are introduced: formation of business relationships with developing countries, competence supply in flexible supply networks, and collaborative product innovation. Based on experiences from these projects, competence management requirements for business community creation are identified and a conceptual framework for supporting the identified requirements is proposed. This framework considers competence management as an essential part of participation in business communities and conceptually integrates organisational and individual competence development. Enterprise models can be employed for supporting competence management and competence development in business community within the framework.

    Application of the Enterprise Model Frame for Security Requirements and Control Identification2016Ingår i: Databases and information systems IX / [ed] Arnicans, G., Arnicane, V., Borzovs, J. Niedrite, L., Amsterdam: IOS Press, 2016, Vol. 291, s. 129-142Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    It is generally accepted that security requirements have to be identified as early as possible to avoid later rework in the systems development process. However, in practice quite often security aspects are considered either at the later stages of development cycles (increments in agile projects) or addressed only when problems arise. One of the reasons for difficulties of early detection of security requirements is the complexity of security requirements identification. In this paper we discuss an extension of the method for security requirements elicitation from business processes (SREBP). The extension includes the application of the enterprise model frame to provide an enterprise architecture context for analyzed business process models. The enterprise model frame covers practically all concepts of the information security related definitions; the use of the frame with the SREBP method complies with the common enterprise modeling and enterprise architecture approaches; and it use helps to consider security requirements and control at the business, application, and technology levels simultaneously.

    Abstract [en]

    It is generally accepted that security requirements have to be elicited as early as possible to avoid later rework in the systems development process. One of the reasons for difficulties of early detection of security requirements is the complexity of security requirements identification. In this paper we propose an extension of the method for security requirements elicitation from business processes (SREBP). The extension includes the application of the enterprise model frame to capture enterprise views and relationships of the analysed system assets. Although the proposal was used in some practical settings, the main goal of this work is conceptual discussion of the proposal. Our study shows that (i) the enterprise model frame covers practically all concepts of the information security related definitions, and that (ii) the use of the frame with the SREBP method complies with the common enterprise modeling and enterprise architecture approaches.

    Capability-Driven Development: A Novel Approach to Design Enterprise Capabilities2016Ingår i: Emerging Trends in the Evolution of Service-Oriented and Enterprise Architectures / [ed] Eman El-Sheikh, Alfred Zimmermann, Lakhmi C. Jain, Springer, 2016, Vol. 111, s. 151-177Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Technological advances, changes in regulations and increasing globalization of the economy demand high adaptability from enterprises in many areas. Enterprise Architecture Management provides organizations with an integrated view enabling such adaptability. In this respect, development and management of the capabilities receive attention, as the term is associated with flexibility, dynamics and variation. On the contrary, little effort has been put towards developing and modeling capabilities. This chapter focuses on the Capability-Driven Development (CDD) method, which is a novel approach for designing capabilities to tackle the challenges of rapidly changing enterprise environments by modeling the application context. The results presented in this chapter are (i) a description of the state of research in capability development methods, (ii) a component-wise structured capability modeling method based on business processes, goals and concepts of an enterprise, (iii) a demonstration of the method application in a use case from the utilities industry and (iv) observations made during the capability development and strategy use.

    Experiences from Ontology Development for Service Innovation in Transportation Industries2015Ingår i: Joint Proceedings of the BIR 2015 Workshops and Doctoral Consortium co-located with 14th International Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research (BIR 2015), Tartu, Estonia, August 26-28, 2015, CEUR-WS , 2015, Vol. 1420, s. 136-147Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Many industries experienced a shift in sourcing and logistics strategies, the industrial demand for more dynamic logistics solutions with adequate IT support is increasing. Due to advances in wireless sensor networks and technologies, the transportation area in logistics industry is the most promising application field for new types of innovative services. The emerging applications in this field require an integrated knowledge base to provide enhanced customer services. The aforementioned trends will lead to service innovation if the adaptation of business models is ensured. Our earlier work focused on adaptable business models [1] and argued that knowledge representation techniques are suitable concepts to improve selforganization [2]. In this paper we introduce the core component of the knowledge architecture represented as ontologies and report experiences from the development process. The contributions of this paper are (a) a detailed description of the ontology construction process based on a realworld scenario, (b) experiences from the development process and, (c) proposed adaptations of an established ontology engineering approach.

    Context modelling in capability management2018Ingår i: Capability management in digital enterprises / [ed] Kurt Sandkuhl & Janis Stirna, Cham: Springer, 2018, s. 117-138Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In the capability-driven development (CDD) approach, a capability is defined by specific business services, a defined application context for these business services, and goals of the enterprise to be reached. To this end, the context modelling method component (CMMC) supports specifying the potential application context where the capability is supposed to be deployed. This specification also captures at what points in the process what variation will have to happen. The specification of the deployment contexts in which a capability can be used is captured in a context model. This chapter presents the CMMC in terms of the modelling constructs (language) and the methodology for capturing and documenting context. The methodology consists of three main components—capture context elements, design context set, and prepare for operational use.

    Towards a Flexible Solution in Knowledge-Based Service Organizations: Capability as a Service2016Ingår i: Exploring Services Science / [ed] Borangiu, Theodor, Dragoicea, Monica, Nóvoa, Henriqueta, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2016, Vol. 247, s. 100-111Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    To improve their chances of survival, enterprises need to cope with the challenges caused by today’s dynamic markets, regulations, customer demands, novel technologies, etc. The shift towards a service-oriented economy as underlined by the concept of Service-Dominant (S-D) Logic is gaining traction within the Service Science community and industry. This shift towards service-dominated business models makes it even more important for enterprises to be agile to meet the rapidly changing customer demands. This demand for agility is reinforced in the context of knowledge-based service organizations (KBSOs), for which flexible service provision is a fundamental requirement. Against this background, we argue that the capability-driven design may provide the KBSOs the required degree of flexibility. Towards this goal, we present an approach for the capability-driven design of enterprises. More precisely, our contributions are (i) the introduction of a capability-based paradigm that contributes to the design of flexible services in KBSOs, (ii) an architecture of our service design and deployment environment and (iii) a demonstration of using our approach based on a real-world use case from an organization in the utilities industry. Our results and insights are based on our work in the EU-FP7 project “Capability as a Service in Digital Enterprises” (CaaS).

    A Method for Context Modelling in Capability Management2016Ingår i: ECIS Proceedings, Research Papers, Association for Information Systems, 2016Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Enterprises exist in the context of their dynamically changing environment, which has a strong impact on service design and delivery. Within areas such as ambient intelligence or robotics, most relevant context has a physical nature. However, the context of an enterprise requires a different conceptual-ization of context awareness. Beyond physical context, enterprises need to be aware of their market, legal and social context. Moreover, in order to monitor context and configure services systematically, we need a context modelling method that is integrated within enterprise modelling and supports in-formation and communication technology (ICT) engineering and runtime. The work in this paper has been performed as part of developing Capability Driven Development (CDD), a new paradigm for ICT design where services are customised on the basis of the essential business capabilities and deliv-ery is adjusted according to the current context. The contributions of the paper are (i) the investiga-tion of industrial needs for context modelling, (ii) eCoM, a context modelling method for enterprise ICT addressing such needs, iii) application of the method in an industrial use case and (iv) the evolu-tion of eCoM based on various evaluation cycles by means of Framework for Evaluation in Design Science Research (FEDS).

    Logistics-as-a-service: ontology-based architecture and approach2012Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Cyber-Physics System (CPS) is a relatively new term assuming tight integration of physical systems andcyber (IT) systems interacting in real time. Such systems aim at providing a flexible and extensibleinfrastructure supporting a variety of inputs (e.g. sensor-based and customer needs) and outputs(actuators or indicators/displays). CPSs rely on communication, computation and control infrastructuresto provide for efficient utilization of logistics infrastructure resources. In this context, Logistics-as-a-Service (LaaS) is a logistics network of organizations, people, information and resources supported byservice-oriented cyber-physical systems. Intelligent multimodal logistics network is an important node inthe worldwide logistics, involved in moving a product from supplier to customer or providing anaccompanying service. The paper presents a generic architecture scheme for LaaS, which is based onrepresenting elements of the logistics networks as services. In this environment, the role of anapplication ontology and integration of individual and organizational competences is investigated andthe use of ontology matching for finding suitable resources in a multi-lingual logistics network isdiscussed.

    Towards a Classification Framework for Approaches to Enterprise Architecture Analysis2016Ingår i: The Practice of Enterprise Modeling, PoEM 2016, Springer, 2016, Vol. 267, s. 335-343Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Analysis is an important part of the Enterprise Architecture Management Process. Prior to decisions regarding transformation of the Enterprise Architecture, the current situation and the outcomes of alternative action plans have to be analysed. Many analysis approaches have been proposed by researchers and current Enterprise Architecture Management tools implement analysis functionalities. However, few work has been done structuring and classifying Enterprise Architecture Analysis approaches. This paper collects and extends existing classification schemes, presenting a framework for Enterprise Architecture Analysis classification. For evaluation, a collection of Enterprise Architecture Analysis approaches has been classified based on this framework. As a result, the description of these approaches has been assessed, a common set of important categories for Enterprise Architecture Analysis classification has been derived and suggestions for further development are drawn.

    An Analysis of Applicability using Quality Metrics for Ontologies on Ontology Design Patterns2015Ingår i: International Journal of Intelligent Systems in Accounting, Finance & Management, ISSN 1055-615X, E-ISSN 1099-1174, Vol. 22, nr 1, s. 81-99Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Ontology design patterns (ODPs) provide best-practice solutions for common or recurring ontology design problems. This work focuses on content ODPs, which form small ontologies themselves and thus can be subject to ontology quality metrics in general. We investigate the use of such metrics for content ODP evaluation in terms of metrics applicability and validity. The quality metrics used for this investigation are taken from existing work in the area of ontology quality evaluation. We discuss the general applicability to content ODP of each metric considering its definition, ODP characteristics, and the defined goals of ODPs. The research process presented in this paper has two phases. In the first phase, we conducted a literature research in the area of metrics for assessing ontology quality. The second phase consisted of a two-step evaluation of the ontology metrics identified in the literature analysis. During the first step, we investigated whether the metrics are appropriate to differentiate between content ODPs of different quality. Metrics that proved to be applicable were calculated for a random set of 14 content ODPs. In the second step, a controlled experiment, the quality indicated by the metric value was contrasted with the perception of ontology engineers; that is, do ‘measured quality’ and ‘perceived quality’ match?

    From Visual Language to Ontology Representation: Using OWL for Transitivity Analysis in 4EM2015Ingår i: Proceedings of Short and Doctoral Consortium Papers Presented at the 8th IFIP WG 8.1 Working Conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modelling (PoEM 2015), Valencia, Spain, November 10-12, 2015, CEUR-WS , 2015, Vol. 1497, s. 51-60Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Usually, enterprise models consider different aspects and include different abstraction levels of enterprises. The application of ontologies as conceptual bases that can clarify relations within and between these abstraction levels is believed to be helpful. This paper investigates the use of ontologies for formalizing enterprise modelling languages and enriching their semantics. The aim is to transform enterprise models into ontologies based on a mapping of the enterprise models’ meta-model into a semantically corresponding ontology. The ontology representation then is used to check logical consistency and to infer new facts regarding the implications of the model beyond what would be possible with a visual modelling language. In order to check feasibility and pertinence of our approach, we selected the goal modelling part of the 4EM method. This paper provides (1) a formal OWL representation of the 4EM goals meta-model; (2) a systematization of transitive goal properties; (3) a set of SWRL rules expressing these transitivity; and (4) an analysis of exemplary goals model instances.

    Visual Language and Ontology Based Analysis: Using OWL for Relation Discovery and Query in 4EM2016Ingår i: BIS 2016 International Workshops, Leipzig, July 6-8, 2016. / [ed] Witold Abramowicz, Rainer Alt, Bogdan Franczyk, Springer, 2016, Vol. 263, s. 23-35Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Usually, enterprise models consider different aspects and include different abstraction levels of enterprises. It is hence challenging to integrate these models and to maintain their consistency. In the light of these challenges, ontologies seem to be relevant to complement enterprise models since they are intended to support communication, computational inference, consistency checking, querying, and the organization of knowledge. In our contribution, we demonstrate that Enterprise modelling can benefit from these characteristics. In order to check feasibility and pertinence of ontology-based Enterprise Models, we selected the goal modelling part and its relations to actors and resources from the “For Enterprise Modelling” (4EM) method. In more detail, this paper provides (1) a formal OWL representation of the 4EM Goals meta-model; (2) a discussion of goal relations regarding transitivity and domain specific inference; (3) a formalization of the discussed inference rules; and (4) an analysis of an exemplary goals model instance. This paper extends earlier work on the topic by the introduction of inter-model relations, a discussion of formalization alternatives, and a comparison of query results with and without ontology-based reasoning.

    Abstract [en]

    While the main purpose of Ontology Design Patterns (ODPs) is to support the process of ontology engineering, they can also be used to improve existing ontologies. This paper has a focus on ODP selection and integration for ontology improvement. Based on the case of the ExpertFinder ontology, which allows for competency description of researchers, selection and integration of ODP is investigated with an explorative view. The current state of ODP selection strategies is discussed and problems arising during integration of ODP are shown. On this base, suggestions for improvements are made. Although this study deals with the integration into an existing ontology, most of the assumptions and suggestions are also valid for the general case of ODP usage.

    Architecture of Knowledge Fusion within an Integrated Mobile Security Kit2010Ingår i: 13th International Information Fusion Conference, Edinburgh, UK, 2010Konferensbidrag (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    A common challenge for applications requiring information and knowledge fusion is the conversion of data streams into knowledge adapted to the context of usage. In the context of the project Integrated Mobile Security Kit, this paper focuses on the knowledge fusion sub-system. It integrates different fusion aspects based on a common domain model and embedded into a distributed and mobile infrastructure. The fusion aspects considered are attribute and situation fusion, situation recognition and event correlation. The main contribution of the paper are (1) the architecture of the knowledge fusion sub-system, (2) the domain model for integrating the fusion aspects and (3) the specification of the inner workings of the three different fusion aspects.
