Today's enterprise managers face the challenge of sifting through overwhelming amounts of disparate information in order to piece together meaningful assessments of market conditions, product and service delivery obligations, and enterprise resource situations in a timely fashion. An enterprise architecture is one way of presenting a "big picture" view of the enterprise. As such, the architecture can present disparate information in an organized set of views tailored to management issues and concerns. However, many detailed architectures have a very large amount of information that makes it difficult to construct and to use. To alleviate this problem, managers need an architecture based on knowledge constructs that organizes the information in a more coherent and relevant manner. The manager needs to see only that information that is directly relevant to the business questions of the moment
This dissertation presents a unique methodology for building a knowledge-based enterprise architecture model that incorporates knowledge modeling methods. This problem-focused, question-based (PFQB) process consists of six steps: problem framing, metamodel development, data collection, model development, architecture deployment, and architecture utilization. The PFQB process incorporates five knowledge modeling methods: business questions, knowledge steps, entity relationship diagrams, concept maps, and class diagrams. The following process artifacts are generated: business question list, detailed question list, survey forms, survey database, conceptual schema, metamodel specification, architecture framework, model template, and enterprise model. The enterprise architectural model is used for identification and assessment of enterprise management concerns and issues
