Abstract:
Future enterprises will be characterized by a focus on total quality, globalization, an object-oriented approach, and a business process-oriented approach. The globalization will lead to the ''virtual enterprise''. The virtual enterprise can obtain a competitive position by defining and reengineering its business processes. However, such reengineering requires an enterprise model. The Factory of the Future (FOF) project developed a theoretical framework for such a model. It is based on a generalization of the Walras model, and defines a number of design choices and performance indicators. This model has been further developed and implemented in the TOPP program. TOPP is a productivity research program for Norwegian manufacturing industry. It studies productivity at two levels: self-audit and external audit. Both use an enterprise model comprising functions, system variables, cycles, and management philosophies. The model has been applied to approximately 50 companies.
