The School of Public Policy’s Enterprise Engineering and Policy (EEP) program presents a seminar today on e-business issues featuring Mathias Kirchmer, president of IDS Scheer, Inc. The seminar is held at 1:30 p.m. in the Johnson Center, Room H, and is open to the university community.

While companies in the 1990s focused on the design and implementation of their internal business processes to overcome functional barriers, this decade is about the integration between enterprises enabled through the Internet, says Ray Sommer, director of EEP. In the seminar “E-Business Process Networks: Successful Value Chains through Standards,” Kirchmer outlines how the content of business reference models can be used to design and implement e-business process networks of the highest performance, using appropriate procedural approaches. Standards enable reliability, speed, and flexibility in the implementation of e-business process networks.

Kirchmer, a renowned expert in designing, implementing, and improving business processes, joined IDS Scheer in 1990 as a consultant and project manager. He is the author of Business Process Oriented Implementation of Standard Software: How to Achieve Competitive Advantage Effectively and Efficiently.
