This session focuses on the missing concepts of enterprise ontology. Exemplifying the need for an integrated enterprise ontology with an enterprise taxonomy, clearly defined objects, descriptions, class types, stereotypes and subtypes as well as semantic relationships. The session does this by firstly defining the needs in terms of the scope, objective as well as which challenges, issues and problems should the enterprise ontology address. Secondly, it describe the integration and relationship between the LEAD Enterprise Ontology with domain, core and foundational ontologies. Followed by the description of the enterprise meta object components of the enterprise ontology. This session therefore endeavoured to provide a standardized terminology, build common understanding, and make available the enterprise relevant objects, specify the class types, stereotypes, types and subtypes as well as illustrate the LEAD Enterprise Ontology categorization and classification. It helps to reduce and/or, if needed, enhance complexity of concepts within enterprise modelling, engineering and architecture principles. Attempting to build a basis of a structured way of thinking, working and execution.
