I would suggest using Process Selection Diagram. The 'scenario' or 'high-level process' can be used as 'scope'. (The Process Selection Diagram is a real matrix while Process Selection Matrix is not. )
Thank you for your suggestion. Just to explain further - we were not looking for a particular model type, but for a flexible way to identify the 'Scope' of all kinds of different models.
I think this is a fairly complex design question.....will be interesting to see if there are any other ideas about how to approach this.
Happy weekend !
The most common approach I have seen for this is simply specifying in the model name the scope of the model. This is done by applying a modifier, often at the end in parens, to the model name. Thus the "global" model is Order-toCash, and the variations are Order-to-Cash (North America), Order-to-Cash (Asia Pacific), Order-to-Cash (Retail) etc. This has the flexibility to be used on any model at any level of detail. As Ivo has pointed out, the Process Selection Diagram is often used as a mechanism to manage the variations of a model for different scopes. There are other details to be worked out depending on how you choose to manage the variations - use variants or not, keep track of "global" vs narrower scope variations or not . . . .
Hope that helps,
Very good suggestion by Mr. Rick Bosworth
Another thing you can do along with this suggestion is that, maintaining the value type "attribute" for the models, to say the values can be North-America, South-America, Asia-Pacific...etc
This will add overhead of maintaing the attribute for all models but looking at the benifit side of this maintenance this task is worth and also its one time activity. Also, this will help in searching the models belongs to a particular scope which can be of any type...
Hope this adds value
