Interoperability and synergism of decision, information and flexibility to improve performances of enterprise systems: KM implications

Abstract : This paper presents the conceptual study aimed at understanding the impact of interoperability between information and decision systems called Decision-Information Synchronization (DIS) and flexibility to improve performance of Enterprise Systems. The study shows that the flexibility enabled lead-time reduction in enterprise systems is influenced by DIS of various types in various ways. It is thus important to appreciate the implications on knowledge management in flexibility driven enterprises. The knowledge of conventional systems requires to be modified and managing the new knowledge is very important. In our view most flexible enterprises face DIS scenarios in real systems. For instance periodic decision-making is a common practice in many enterprise systems. Hence it is important to develop new DIS based models of enterprise systems and show the new knowledge explicitly to the managers. The studies indicated that DIS has significant effect on the lead-time performance in the enterprise system. It is the synergy of DIS and flexibility that contributes to higher performance. Typically managers invest in greater flexibility hoping that it will improve performance. The models of the nature discussed are needed by KM professionals to help change such mindsets.
