Business Concepts: Business Unit


The Business Unit concept is used to depict a group of roles that perform a common task or share a common characteristic. Business Units usually are chained together using the relationship "Parent" and almost always form a hierarchy. Typically, Business Units consist of a group of individual Roles but may also be formed by a group of sub business units.

Business Units can consists of:


  • Entities

  • Domains

  • Companys

  • Divisions

  • Departments

  • Groups/Teams

  • Customers

  • Suppliers

  • Contractors

  • Etc.

Roles connect to Business Units via the "Member of" relationship and the lowest level of the hierarchy is the Person Concept.

An example: Phil M. has the role Developer which is a Member of the Engineering Department who's parent is Process Tempo.
