Abstract: Enterprise Ontology (EO) is a new subject that applies the Ψ-theory to the development and conception of social information systems. This theory, proposed by Jan Dietz, is based on the Language Action Perspective. In order to model an enterprise this theory presents a modelling method composed by four distinct aspect models, which use a collection of tables and diagrams to express themselves. A domain specific language was supplied for those diagrams that it is not standard or easily portable. In order to make these diagrams more useful and available this paper proposes the use of the Unified Modelling Language (UML) to represent EO most important diagrams where the EO main concepts are shown. The use of UML will bring some important benefits such as portability, interoperability, wider audience and understanding among others. In this sense a UML 2 profile has been created for representing the diagrams mentioned. An example of application of this profile is shown and an extended disc ussion of its creation is made. This will address the difficulties and issues found when metamodelling the solution using UML and will help to assess the feasibility of UML for this kind of problems. (More)
