Abstract

Ontologies have been used in several fields as an engineering artefact with the main purpose of conceptualizing a specific object of study. Therefore, it is reasonable to think about using ontologies to support enterprise modelling. In this paper, we investigate the application of ontologies in enterprise modelling. We performed a comprehensive systematic mapping study in order to understand the usage of ontologies to enterprise modeling. We group the results by business areas, business segments, languages, environments and methodologies. We conclude that ontologies are applicable to assist enterprise modelling and have been used specially in Industry, Health and Environment and Government.
