DEMO modelling
methodology

The Design and Engineering Methodology for Organisations (DEMO) is a core method within the discipline of Enterprise Engineering which is based on a theoretically sound methodology.

The DEMO method focuses on the creation of so-called essential models of organisations. These models capture the organisational essence primarily in terms of the actor roles involved and the business transactions between these actor roles. 

More specifically, an essential model comprises the integrated whole of four aspect models: the Construction Model, the Action Model, the Process Model, and the Fact Model. Each of these models is expressed in one or more diagrams and one or more cross-model tables.
