2nd International Workshop on Practicing Open Enterprise Modeling within OMiLAB (PrOse 2018)

in conjunction with 11th IFIP WG 8.1 working conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modelling, PoEM 2018

The digital transformation opens new research fields such as Internet of Things, Factories of the Future and Cyber-Physical Systems. Thereby enterprises face information systems with increasing scope, flexibility and distribution. At the same time, enterprises rely on highly flexible, tightly integrated business processes, which enforce the integration of the underlying information systems. Conceptual models, aiming to simplify complexity, are eligible instruments for designing and managing such complex systems. OMiLAB (Open Models Initiative Laboratory) is a scientific experimentation space for the conceptualization, development, and deployment of modeling methods and the models designed with them. Thereby, the term “open” in OMiLAB reflects that the initiative is open for any modeling approach. Besides the physical OMiLABs in Austria and South Korea there is a virtual OMiLAB accessible at www.omilab.org which allows scientists from all over the world to join this initiative. In this context, the workshop focuses on how open enterprise models, enterprise modeling methods and enterprise modeling tools are: (1) used, (2) adopted, and (3) evaluated in education, industry, and research in the scope of the aforementioned challenges. Contributions to the workshop may be based on existing OMiLAB projects, or propose a path toward a new OMiLAB project. Moreover, we solicit submissions with a focus on open enterprise modeling.
