Abstract

With the introduction of smart manufacturing, the scope of IT expands towards physical processes on the
shop floor. Enterprise architects, software engineers and process engineers will have to work closely together
to build the information systems that are connected to the shop floor and aligned with the business needs of
smart manufacturers. However, it is unclear whether they have the means to do so. This research aims to
provide enterprise architecture modelling support for smart manufacturers by investigating ArchiMate 3.0’s
fitness for this purpose. ArchiMate 3.0 meta-model is compared to the ISA-95 standard for enterprise systems
and control systems integration. Modelling patterns are introduced, along with some new modelling concepts,
to compensate for deficiencies found. The patterns proposed are validated as part of a case study.
