In this paper, the authors describe an approach to validate the capability of the ATHENA-enhanced enterprise modeling solutions to capture necessary cross-organizational business information in a computable form and to exchange partial models using a proposed common meta-model. The basis for the validation is the Electronic Kanban replenishment process and data interchange protocol that has been standardized to support the Inventory Visibility and Interoperability (IV&I) project for the automotive supply chain. The paper discusses results of and lessons learned from the validation process.
