Part of the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing book series (LNBIP, volume 37)


The paper deals with knowledge-based enterprise management modeling and user requirements acquisition. The enterprise management is considered from the control point of view, management function is formally predefined as Elementary Management Cycle (EMC). Few new types of specialized Workflow models are deployed for domain knowledge elicitation and BP analysis. Two types of logical gaps are identified by transformations of empirical BP model to knowledge based BP model.
