A novel and comprehensive framework is outlined at a mostly conceptual level for future enterprise modeling systems. We discuss some major design issues and indicate the direction future research could take to support enterprise wide problem formulation and problem solving. The focus of the paper is chiefly on investigating the question of how to better do model building, and how to extract the relevant parts of the model to support specific analyses of corporate issues in an enterprise wide environment. Conceptually, we are looking for an enterprise modeling system (EMS) which automatically builds and executes task specific models as needed in response to queries posed by the user. EMS is especially aimed at supporting strategic decision making such as predicting the effects of changes in business policies, analyzing possible reactions to internal and external threats, and exploring new business opportunities.
