Using a conceptual and operational framework for improving the enterprise and keeping their desired situation is always required.

The framework seeks for service oriented architecture (SOA) governance and suggests the initial architecture of the enterprise to support agility and optimality. Also, for the stability purpose a structure including service platforms, analyzers and decision support systems are employed to analyze the enterprise and make better decisions. Costs and competitive pressures have causeds organizations to create a convenient framework to move with high potential in a competitive market. In the context of the development rather than basic paperwork and basic decision making, integrated and comprehensive solutions containing modeling, simulation, monitoring, design and improvement, are used. The requisite for this solution is to use service context and integrated enterprise resource planning applications. In this article, initially the literature review of the basic components of the proposed methodology is discussed. Then, the proposed framework and its components are described. Finally, the implementation of the framework in an automotive manufacturing company is illustrated.
