An improving ‘structural constraints’ case study

This tutorial provides an illustrative example of how the BORO methodology has been used to re-engineer and improve ‘structural constraints’ in existing frameworks. It provides a nice example of how an ontological analysis can reveal the constraints and identify how they can be improved. The case study is taken from a project that developed a common data foundation for an oil and gas enterprise. One area under analysis was cost management. The starting point for the analysis was the NORSOK Z-014 Standard cost coding system. The tutorial looks at its the structural constraints were identified and remedied. This is part of a series of tutorials that walk through examples that illustrate how the BORO methodology has been used to re-engineer data in an industrial context.
