Interactive Analysis of Agent-Goal Models in Enterprise Modeling

Jennifer Horkoff, Eric Yu
2010 International Journal of Information System Modeling and Design  
Understanding and analyzing the needs of an enterprise in the early stages of a project requires knowledge about stakeholders, their goals, interactions, and alternative actions.  ...  We argue that "Early" Enterprise modeling requires analysis procedures which account for the incompleteness and informality of early agent-goal models, facilitating iteration, elicitation, and user participation  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Financial support has been provided by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, Bell University Laboratories, and the Ontario Graduate Scholarship Program.  ...
