Session : "Defining performance indicators for industrial and logistic cross-enterprise processes". 14th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CONCURRENT ENTERPRISING - Lisbon – Portugal, 23-25 June 2008 : A new wave of innovation in Collaborative Networks"
Call for Papers
Some axes of reflection and research proposed:
What is the scope of performance indicators: A pure business scope? An IS scope? An IT scope? All of them?
Which are the semantic levels for defining performance indicators: Concerns level? Benefits level? Objectives level? Requirements level? Process specifications level?
Which methods we have for defining performance indicators for industrial and logistic cross-enterprise processes: Is a business-functional ontology mandatory? Is a sector-ontology mandatory? Is a concern-specific ontology mandatory for performance indicators?
What is the gap to a complete definition: Is the semantic approach completely satisfactory? Why an ontological model finally remains unsaturated? What do we lose when trying to translate a modelling formalism into another? What is the nature of this lost: syntactical, semantic, axiological, social, human, contextual? How to identify these inexplicit contents, how to explicit and formalize them?
How can we capture and quantify performance indicators for industrial and logistic cross-enterprise process: ideas, methods, techniques (ex. RFID), tools, researches.
Innovation exploratory fields: free for theoretical and empirical experimentations.
