Abstract

In organizations, goals and rules on different levels ranging from visions, to strategies, tactics, and operational goals have been expressed for a long time. In the IS-field, the interest on goals and rules has come from two directions. A) Business goals for use in requirements specification. B) Rule-based (expert) systems, focusing on automation of rule-execution. We were already 15 years ago involved in an EU-project Tempora together with Benkt Wangler and others where we tried to combine these worlds. Although able to produce interesting prototypes, the approaches we used then proved to be difficult to scale to an industrial setting. 15 years later we are involved in taking these approaches to a new level. We will in this paper present our approach to combining goal, data, resource and process modeling, in the support of the development and user-led evolution of what we term Model-generated Workplaces (MGWP), with an emphasis on the use of goal and rule-modeling in combination with process modeling. A case study extending an ongoing industrial trial of production rule systems is provided to illustrate some of the benefits of the approach.
