dc.description.abstractThe merging of Business Process Reengineering (BPR) with Object-Oriented Technology (OOT) has been substantively advanced by many authors [Carr and Johansson, 1995; Jacobson et al., 1995; Taylor, 1990, 1995; Yourdon, 1994]. BPR is defined as "The fundamental rethinking and radical redesign of business processes to bring about dramatic improvements in performance" [Hammer and Stanton, 1995, p. 3]. These business processes will most often span across multiple business functions. A business process is "a set of linked activities that take an input, transform it, and create an output" [Carr and Johansson, 1995, p. 9] while a business function refers to the fragmented simple, repetitive steps that are carried out by single departments within the organization [Hammer and Champy, 1993]. This makes it very difficult for the traditional information systems (IS), that were developed to support business functions, to also support a newly developed business process. Object-oriented technology (OOT) is becoming the paradigm of choice to support business process reengineering due to its flexibility and reusability.
