Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing: Enterprise and Organizational Modelling and Simulation.
The research reported in this paper aims at introducing principally new approach to the design of traceability applications for supply network by the means of semantically consistent and conceptually aligned abstractions of business-processes, data, and software architecture. To derive needed abstractions, proposed approach uses the general principles of enterprise ontology for meta-description of business objects and processes, conceptual modeling techniques for data representation in a universal format, and multi-agent solution adjusted with an ontological view on data model and business processes of organizations. The method for data modeling consistent with the business view on supply chain activities is introduced and exemplified. Agent-based approach to tracing data analysis and particular model of intellectual agents are presented.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 11th International Workshop on Enterprise and Organizational Modeling and Simulation, EOMAS 2015, held at CAiSE 2015, in June 2015 in Stockholm, Sweden.
EOMAS was founded with the purpose to become a forum among researchers and practitioners to share their research and practical findings by encouraging the dissemination of research results under a more generic umbrella called enterprise engineering, which encompasses internal factors ranging from organizational complexity to intricacy of business processes and sophistication in workflows as well as external factors and uncertainties such as competition, politics, or the emergence of innovative technologies.
The 15 papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 28 submissions. They were organized in topical sections named: enterprise conceptual modeling and simulation; enterprise modeling formal foundation; and enterprise optimization.
This paper presents a new approach to designing integrated simulation models for large corporations. This approach is based on the use of system-dynamics methods for implementing models of segments of the vertically integrated company taking into account the available direct and feedback links. All models have been designed with the help of power simulation tool - Powersim Studio. In addition, the designed simulation system has been integrated with created genetic algorithm and the corporate data warehouse.
I. The simulation and research into advanced airborne CNS procedures was conducted by the Research Stand for Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulation of Air Traffic Control Systems (KIS UVD) in 2013–2014. II. As part of the research, the following CNS procedures were reviewed: • ITP (In-Trail Procedure) • FIM (Flight-Deck Interval Management) • ACM (Airborne Conflict Management). III. Real-time simulation was conducted with the participation of ATC workstation operator, operator of the advanced cockpit DKS IMA simulator and pilot workstation operator. IV. The research into CNS procedures was conducted using fast-time simulation in automatic mode without operator's participation. V. As part of the work • the cooperation of pilot and ATC during advanced CNS procedures was approbated • the interfaces of CNS procedures for pilot and ATC were tested • performance approbation of CNS procedures in high air traffic conditions with the impact of random factors was held • the quantity characteristics of changes in performance caused by using new CNS procedures were calculated • CNS procedures were compared with standard procedures VI. The results show • Improved performance and prospects using new CNS procedures • KIS UVD stand practicability for simulation and research of airborne and ATC procedures • Need for future research of CNS procedures VII. The future research trends are: • The research of airborne procedures in different air traffic intensity and in conditions where one part of aircrafts is equipped with ADS-B-, ITP-, FIM-, ACM avionics and another part is not equipped • The research of FIM procedure on STAR • The simulation and research of other ADS-B-based procedures (ASIA, SURF) • The research into airborne procedures, connected with weather hazard avoidance • The research into airborne procedures using the real air traffic.
A century ago, Taylor published a landmark in the organisational sciences: his Principles of Scientific Management. Many researchers have elaborated on Taylors principles, or have been influenced otherwise. The authors of the current paper evaluate a century of enterprise development, and conclude that a paradigm shift is needed for dealing adequately with the challenges that modern enterprises face. Three generic goals are identified. The first one, intellectual manageability, is the basis for mastering complexity; current approaches fall short in assisting professionals to master the complexity of enterprises and enterprise changes. The second goal, organisational concinnity, is conditional for making strategic initiatives operational; current approaches do not, or inadequately, address this objective. The third goal, social devotion, is the basis for achieving employee empowerment as well as knowledgeable management and governance; modern employees are highly educated knowledge workers; yet, the mindset of managers has not evolved accordingly. The emerging discipline of Enterprise Engineering, as conceived by the authors, is considered to be a suitable vehicle for achieving these goals. It does so by providing new, powerful theories and effective methodologies. A theoretical framework is presented for positioning the theories, goals, and fundamentals of enterprise engineering in four classes: philosophical, ontological, ideological and technological.
In modern world enterprises need to be agile in their operation and structure to react to changes quickly. One of the open questions here is how to develop the enterprise, or, to be more precise, if enterprise needs to be developed, and if yes, in which way. In this research we are focusing on the case when enterprise stakeholders understand the need of enterprise development, have ideas for that, and they need decision support method to understand if enterprise restructuring is likely to be successful and cost effective. Another covered topic is how to choose the best option for restructuring from variety provided. In this paper we describe the developed decision support method which combines DEMO methodology and transaction costs theory for quantitative costs estimation. To make this method applicable and reproducible we proposed few enhancements to DEMO notation.
This paper presents the simulation tool for study future ATM systems, based on advanced CNS capabilities. Research Stand for hardware-in-the-loop and human-in-the-loop simulation of Air Traffic Management System is the simulation tool, which includes on-board and ground-based components of the air traffic management system. Due to wide range of integrated components the Stand allows studying advanced concepts and technologies of the whole air traffic management system. The Stand allows running simulation in fast-time and real-time modes. Fast time simulation is applied to the long-term experiments. During this simulation all components work in automatic mode. Real-time human-in-the-loop simulation runs to demonstrate functional interaction between ATM components. The main goals of the researches, conducted on the stand, are: • approbation of pilot and air traffic controller interaction; • approbation of new cockpit and ATC system interfaces; • approbation of new airborne functions; • assessment of changes in air traffic characteristics in case of using CNS capabilities .
t h TEE (Transformation & Engineering of Enterprises) series of workshops is an evolution, and merger, of the successful PRET series of events and the AppEER workshop . The scope of the TEE series includes both the original scopes of PRET and AppEER ( www.tee-series.org ). Modern day enterprises are in a constant state of flux. New technologies, new markets, globalisation, mergers, acquisitions, etc. are among the "usual suspects" triggering enterprises to transform themselves in order to deal with these challenges and new realities. Such transformations might e.g. take the form of top-down and premeditated efforts, but might also occur as numerous small changes that emerge bottom-up in an apparently spontaneous way. The TEE workshop approaches enterprise transformation from a multi-disciplinary perspective. Transformation & Engineering of Enterprises involves the use of methods and techniques from business process management, business engineering, business-IT alignment, organizational change management, governance, business transformation, enterprise architecture, enterprise modelling and ontologies, and information systems engineering. The mission of the TEE series is to tee-off and foster research concerning engineering based instruments (methods, languages, analysis techniques, principles, patterns, etc.) that will enable enterprises to transform with confidence. As a field of study, enterprise transformation requires a close interaction between practice and academia. However, it is in industrial practice where challenges can be found that may fuel and inspire researchers. The series appreciates narratives and analysis of real-life situations, such as case studies. In addition, the series is open to papers that consider these topics from a theoretical stance, as well as papers that combine these practice and theory. Nevertheless, all papers should take the needs of enterprise transformation in practice as their point of reference. CBI 2014 also saw the emergence of two related workshops in the area of enterprise modelling and engineering. the LABEM (Lowering the Adoption Barrier of Enterprise Modelling) workshop and the Workshop on Enterprise Engineering Theories and Methods (WEETM). We are happy to announce that in 2015, LABEM, TEE and WEETM will merge under the TEE banner, with the joint support of the Enterprise Engineering Team ( http://www.ee-team.eu/ ) and the CIAO! research network ( http://www.ciaonetwork.org/ ). The future TEE workshops will aim to attract papers in domains including: Enterprise Transformation & Innovation; Enterprise Engineering and Architecting and Enterprise Modelling. Case reports on transformation & engineering of enterprises will be another essential domain for papers submitted to TEE. Stay tuned on the TEE website ( www.tee-series.org ) for news and updates on domains and topics relevant for TEE. Wolfgang Molnar Hend
We apply first principles calculations to compare the carbon and boron nitride nanotube unzipping under atomic oxygen impact. We show that the attack of several oxygen atoms can cause bond breaking in nanotubes, but the structure of boron nitride nanotubes is less damaged than the structure of carbon ones. With increasing diameter, the structural damage of nanotubes reduces
