Process orientation is a major concern nowadays. For this reason there have been great advances in business process modelling as means to better understand and promote organizational operations and evolution. However, organizational functions such as logistics, quality, finance, etc. still exist and strongly influence aspects like change processes, or the structuring of organizational units even if a “process culture” is established. This paper proposes a framework for integrating modelling, monitoring and learning aspects associated with the functional dimension of the enterprise. This framework is based on: (1) an ontology proposed (in another forthcoming paper) for the functional dimension of an organization; (2) the fundamental concepts: entity, role and activity, that are the base for current research work by other authors, on modelling other dimensions or concerns of an enterprise architecture. Also an example of application of the framework is presented as a proof of concept.
