Part Stage Business ecosystem modeling
Part I
Business ecosystem architecture development
1 Identify the boundary of a selected ecosystem.
2 Identify actors and their roles in the ecosystem.
3 Identify actors’ value propositions and business models.
4 Identify interaction between actors (different types of interactions)
Part II
Factor analysis
1 Investigate influential factors and their impact on the elements in the ecosystem (actors, roles, and interaction)
2 Investigate potential changes in the ecosystem.
Part III
Ecosystem simulation and reconfiguration
1 Multi-agent based ecosystem modeling to identify ecosystem reaction towards the potential changes.
2 Ecosystem reconfiguration (including reconfiguration of actors, roles, and interaction) due to changes, system dynamics modeling might be applied at this stage.
3 Business model reconfiguration.
