    The economic climate of the 1990s, characterised by fast moving business environments, necessitates a systematic approach to business strategy modelling as a prerequisite for organisations to sustain competitive advantage. Strategic planning is a continuous process of change which originates in factors internal or external to the organisation. The major problem in strategic change lies in the orga...

    The Esprit GOAL Project (Esprit 6283) aims to develop a new generation of generic software tools to support a new project management paradigm: the `extended enterprise'. Some distinguishing characteristics of projects in the new paradigm are that they are collaborative, decentralised, and inter-organisational. The approach of GOAL is to build a customisable GOAL kernel, called the GOAL information... View full abstract»

    F-cube (`From Fuzzy to Formal') is an ESPRIT-funded project (No.6612) to create methods and tools to support requirements engineers in the acquisition, analysis, validation, specification, and prototyping of requirements for computerized systems. It is intended that tools under the general umbrella of enterprise and environment modelling be part of the tool-kit. The authors have carried out knowle... View full abstract»

    Increased globalisation and de-regulation in the commercial environment has given rise to requirements for a new generation of software tools capable of supporting complex, dispersed inter-organisational projects and decision making. A major difficulty in designing such systems relates to the fact that the ultimate users of such tools are commonly from varying backgrounds, have different conceptua... View full abstract»

    Enhancement of current process modelling methods is possible using experience gained in other related areas, in particular the use of experience from twenty years of AI planning research. This research is now maturing and finding practical applications in the commercial, industrial, engineering and military sectors. The plan representations which have emerged have been found to be of benefit in a ... View full abstract»

    The aim is to show how responsibility modelling can be used as a means of specifying requirements on an IT system in a way that is meaningful to both users and systems designers. The authors show how obligations define what a responsibility holder must do, and how these can be divided into those that must be done by people and those that are transferable on to the IT system, thus creating function...

    Contracting is a complex decision process that involves the sifting and evaluation of masses of information, culminating in a set of contracts, each of which is a concise summary of: healthcare needs and outcomes; and the work-load for a lot of people over a long period of time. The author describes the use of Ep:Script knowledge base for planning evaluating and testing contracts. EpiScript is a c... View full abstract»
