Abstract
Modeling approaches are gaining popularity in knowledge management KM, especially in specifying knowledge contents. This paper addresses the enterprise knowledge modeling. An enterprise knowledge model provides users with an integrated, holistic view of organizational knowledge resources. Employing a reliable methodology is critical to building successful enterprise knowledge models. A good methodology provides an effective and efficient mechanism for developing a model. This paper first reviews the enterprise knowledge modeling EKM and its methodologies. An ontology-based EKM OBEKM methodology is proposed. Its products, procedures, and modeling language are described. The methodology is then applied to the construction of a shipping company's knowledge model for demonstration.

Database marketing (DBM) provides in -depth analysis of marketing databases. Knowledge discovery in database techniques is one of the most prominent approaches to supporting some of the DBM process phases. However, in many cases, the benefits of these tools are not fully exploited by marketers. Complexity and amount of data constitute two major factors limiting the application of knowledge discovery techniques in marketing activities. Currently, ontologies may here play an important role in the ...

This widely used book teaches practical object-oriented software engineering with the key real world tools UML, design patterns and Java. This step-by-step approach allows the reader to address complex and changing problems with practical and state-of-the-art solutions. This book uses examples from real systems and examines the interaction between such techniques as UML, Java-based technologies, design patterns, rationale, configuration management, and quality control. It also discusses project ...

Ontology plays an essential role in recognizing the meaning of the information in Web documents. It has been shown that extracting concepts is easier than building relationships among them. For a defined set of concepts, many existing algorithms produce all possible relationships for that set. This makes the process of refining the relationships almost impossible. A new algorithm is needed to reduce the number of relationships among a defined set of concepts produced by existing algorithms. This...

In philosophy, Ontology is the basic description of things in the world. In information science, an ontology refers to an engineering artifact, constituted by a specific vocabulary used to describe a certain reality. Ontologies have been proposed for validating both conceptual models and conceptual schemas; however, these roles are quite dissimilar. In this article, we show that ontologies can be better understood if we classify the different uses of the term as it appears in the literature. Fir...

Since knowledge management (KM) is considered to be an important function of a successful business operation, many organizations are embracing KM. The success of a KM project is dependent upon its contents. This article presents a method for building an effective knowledge model that can help businesses to analyze and specify knowledge content. The method takes a decision-oriented view. For the modeling language of the method, Unified Modeling Language (UML) has been chosen. The method is applie...

An effective solution to the problem of extending a dialogue system to new knowledge domains requires a clear separation between the knowledge and the system: as ontologies are used to conceptualize information, they can be used as a means to improve the separation between the dialogue system and the domain information. This paper presents the development of an ontology for the cooking domain, to be integrated in a dialog system. The ontology comprehends four main modules covering the key concep...

In today's business environment of relentless change, the topic of how one should proceed with understanding the reasons for change and alternative strategic options, has received much attention by researchers and practitioners alike. This paper considers the relation between goal-oriented business process modeling and organizational change and addresses the question "how can we reason about organizational change using a goal-driven approach?" To this end, it describes a systematic way-of-workin...

The goal of having networks of seamlessly connected people, software agents and IT systems remains elusive. Early integration efforts focused on connectivity at the physical and syntactic layers. Great strides were made; there are many commercial tools available, for example to assist with enterprise application integration. It is now recognized that physical and syntactic connectivity is not adequate. A variety of research systems have been developed addressing some of the semantic issues. In t...

Ontology and the concept of ontologies have attracted considerable attention in the context of research on information systems analysis and design. Being rooted in philosophy, both ontology and the concept of ontologies bear their own history of philosophical debates which have quite often been ignored when applied in the field of information systems. In this contribution it is claimed that a more comprehensive discussion of well-known philosophical issues of ontology and ontologies will help us...

The study builds on existing research in management control (MC) and innovation management. The purpose of this study is to identify patterns in the application of MC instruments which contribute to successful innovation. The application of MC instruments can reduce potential risks and make the new product development (NPD) process more transparent and efficient.,The authors use dyadic data to determine the effect of 58 MC instruments on NPD process stage-specific performance and subsequent inno...

The assets of enterprises are increasingly exposed to internal and external threats like fraud, theft, embezzlement, sabotage, terrorism and industrial espionage. As a result, enterprise security (ES) as a support function is becoming more important and expenses for ES are significant. An important characteristic of ES setting it apart from other support functions is that in addition to the protection of material and immaterial assets, it is concerned with the physical integrity and survival of ...
