The Enterprise Architecture of a business is made up of three cooperating Structures:

  • The Organization Structure, which controls product and resource activity by directing their work and allocating the necessary resources.

  • The Product System, which transforms resources into the product (or service) and sells it to individual customers.

  • The Resource System, which interacts with individual suppliers to acquire resources and distribute them to various business functions.
