Enterprise Modeling Tools
This chapter focuses on EM tools for the use in EM projects supporting basic analysis techniques (discussed in Chap. 4) and development of the different modeling perspectives and sub-models of the enterprise model (presented in Chap. 8). The tools used to support EM do not include only IT-based applications for documenting models. Traditional aids, like flip charts, the “plastic wall,” and paper-based modeling, are also used during modeling workshops. Core feature of Enterprise Modeling tools as well as a process for tool acquisition are also discussed in this chapter.
