Conceptualizing Enterprise Dynamic Systems Control for Run-Time Business Transactions
Business transaction models prescribe the design freedom restrictions of a process-based organization and are useful to share a common understanding between the stakeholders that have a diverse interpretation of it. However, business transaction models do not guarantee that the business actors perform them accordingly. Business actors, individually and/or collectively, operate the organization and also administrate and control (steer and transform) it, by means of observing the state of the world and then acting with purpose to change its state. Therefore, a business actor is simultaneous a controller agent and a controlled agent within an enterprise. Classical dynamic system control theories alone are not applicable in a straightforward way to an enterprise because of the prohibitive complexity needed for the comprehensive definition of the business transactions' dynamics.
