Abstract: The studies, research and solutions presented below started from the acute need of small and medium-sized enterprises to integrate their processes, services and relationships with customers and suppliers, in a cost-effective manner, given the fact that ERP systems are quite expensive for such organizations.

Keywords: Web tehnologies, multi-criterion analysis, modelling languages, enterprise integration.

1. Introduction

The survival and development of Romanian enterprises require alignment with international norms on product and service quality. First and foremost, all top manufacturers and importers require that the products they are supplied with be produced in systems that facilitate their improvement in terms of quality, environment, health, and occupational safety, etc.

This paper aims to create/present a methodology for the integration of the enterprise and its departments as well as the integration of the enterprise with its suppliers and customers in order to answer promptly to changes on the market. The model does not aim at developing a system able to be implemented – from scrap – into an enterprise, but to focus on the integration of the already extant systems (departments, human resources, software, hardware, etc.), because of the lower implementation costs than those involved in the case of a specialized ERP systems, such as SAP (a system which can be purchased by multinational enterprises only, because of its high costs).
