VSM and Enterprise Architecture: Patterns-based Requirements Acquisition
Riga Technical University, Latvia
The approach utilizes the power of systems theory models and enterprise architecture. The meta-structure of Beer’s Viable Systems Model (VSM) is taken as the basis for requirements identification and analysis for an information system. The enterprise is considered as a system of systems. The information system is regarded as one of enterprise subsystems which have to mirror the variety of parameters handled by a super-system. Each information flow is represented via specific enterprise architecture pattern in the enterprise model. The use of pattern helps to ensure the consistency of requirements. The use of VSM helps to care that all types of information flows relevant for viability of the enterprise are detected and represented in the enterprise model.
