Enterprise reengineering can provide dramatic
competitive improvements for manufacturing.
This book establishes enterprise reengineering as an
approach that enables manufacturing enterprises to
achieve fit between market requirements and
operations capabilities. Enterprise reengineering
is a model-based and strategy driven
approach that enables manufacturers to realise
the “soft” or infrastructural aspects of an
operations strategy. To support such reengineering
efforts, enterprises are viewed not only from a
process perspective but also from a resource,
materials, information, organisational, and control
perspective. Modelling and analysing enterprises
from these perspectives can support their effort to
implement best practices, and ensure that the
practices are combined in a way that supports the
overall business strategy.
The major contribution of this book is an enterprise
reengineering methodology, which includes strategic
planning, and operations mapping, analysis, design,
