Enterprise systems Configuration as an Information Logistics Process - A Case Study
2007 (English)In: Proceedings of 9th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems: ICEIS-2007 / [ed] Jorge Cardoso, José Cordeiro, Joaquim Filipe, SciTePress, 2007, Vol. 3, 212-220 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper, we suggest using rule-based descriptions of customer’s requirements for Enterprise Systems implementing Information Logistics. The rules are developed from the users’ requirements and inserted as schedules to the Enterprise System. The output, from testing these rules, is a list of modules and parameter settings to configure the system. By using rules, we can, at least partly, automate the configuration process by traversing the several modules and thousands parameters that are in an Enterprise System. From the list, we can select the modules and the parameters that meet the customer’s requirements. Then these selected modules and parameters are visually presented through a kind of Unified Modeling Language diagrams, to support the user investigation and then to configure the system either manually or automatically. Every attempt to match a customer’s requirement to the contents of the knowledge base within the Enterprise system can be thought of as an Information Logis tics Process. The output from such a process must be examined by the user, which can give rise to a new call to the Information Logistics process. In other words the configuration work is done through a dialogue between the customer and the knowledge base of the Enterprise system.
