Abstract

Best practice refers to the best way to perform specified activities. In this paper we present our SIM approach that incorporates best practices as skeletal plans from which several entity-specific (ES) plans are generated. The skeletal and ES plans represent the complex information incorporating the best practices into organization activities. The paper also presents the SIM framework for managing complex information through three phases: specifying the skeletal plans, instantiating ES plans, maintaining these ES plans during their lifespan. The paper outlines an implementation, a case study and the evaluation of the SIM approach and framework.
