Definition & Concepts
Economic, real or fictitious, internal or external agent in
the studied entity, who is dedicated to a well characterized part of the value
chain within the ecosystem
. Operatoprs are, either
specialized with regard to an event
, one moment of a
, or specialized by resource or
service provided to the ecosystem
In a universe
, there is always one or
more operators who insure the role of integrator, with regard to the
and to the various
In the "systemic" analysis of the components of the ecosystem
, the operator must be
seen as a "black box". It deploys its own process, and relies on its own
information systems. However, it can use external benchmarks, and some operators
may even manage these benchmarks. An operator has a role to play, and this role
can be played by different actors.
The separation in autonomous operators, even if it remains
theoretical, facilitates the understanding of the engineering of the value
contributions: every constituent of the value is more tangible, because it can
be allocated to a specialized operator.
The classification, and the organization of the value
contributions in Layers,
is translated by a distribution
of the operators in levels, according to the logic of this fragmentation of the Value Chain.
Operators share "benchmarks", ie operating systems managing
common data and serving as reference: catalog of products, reference customers …
The operators have relations more or less defined by contracts
giving place to "protocols".
Elements of syntax
We shall position, if it makes sense, the operators in
front of the events which concern them.
The operators of integration will be situated in
middle-floor, and those who are specialized on a type of resource are positioned
more low in the value chain.
The relations between operators of same "Stratum" are
not to be privileged: the operators of integration have exactly for role to put
in coherence and in synergy the operators of the other layer.
There is no limit as for the number of
operators in a stratum.
An proximity operator exists only if he is bound to an event.
operator can treat one or several events.
same operator can be common to several universes.
