Business Process Reengineering (BPR) produces radical improvements for the reengineered enterprise. The critical success factors for successful BPR were emphasized. A reengineered enterprise is process-focused to add-value to its customers. The technique of Object Oriented Business Process Engineering (OOBPR) involves building ideal and object models using object-oriented technology. OOBPR is suitable to model complex semiconductor enterprises due to its good scalability, seamless integration with supporting IT systems and adaptability to changes. Building models are useful methods to simplify complex enterprise organizations to show their static and dynamic structures. The key technical elements of object-oriented modeling were introduced. The technique of building and applying use-cases and interaction diagrams were illustrated. OOBPR consists of the following steps; a reengineering directive to specify the goals the reengineering project must achieve, envisioning, reverse engineering to understand the status quo of the enterprise, forward engineering and installing the reengineered processes.
