Managing re-engineering with the CIMOSA architectural framework

Arian J.R. Zwegers, Theo A.G. Gransier
1995 Computers in industry (Print)  
The objective of this paper is to present an approach for re-engineering processes in manufacturing using the architectural framework CIMOSA. New market requirements demand new production strategies.  ...  Appropriate usage of the CIMOSA modelling framework and the integrating infrastructure contributes to business integration and application integration.  ...  One of the main reasons is that the tools, necessary to fulfil the jobs, are not prepared. To solve this problem, a tool logistic system had to be implemented.  ...

Patterns for Business-to-consumer E-Commerce Applications [article]

Xiaohong Yuan, Eduardo B. Fernandez
2011 arXiv   pre-print
E-commerce is one of the most important web applications. We present here a set of patterns that describe shopping carts, products, catalogue, customer accounts, shipping, and invoices.  ...  We combine them in the form of composite patterns, which in turn make up a domain model for business-to-consumer e-commerce. We also indicate how to add security constraints to this model.  ...  The domain model can be used as a CIM from which specific applications (for example, an inventory management system) can be produced using an MDA approach.  ...
