With the development of information technologies especially the network technologies, the globalization and informationization of enterprise become a trend. The globalization of enterprise is the increasing collaboration among enterprises, this trend requires the enterprise systems and applications need to be interoperable in order to achieve seamless business interaction across organizational boundaries, and realize networked organizations.Through integration and reconfiguration, realizing the interoperability of the enterprise application software to support the collaboration among enterprises need to solve many problems, for example different software architectures, semantic clash, at the same time the rapidity, flexibility and seamless of interoperability should be guaranteed. With a material management system of SCM of an astronautic enterprise as an example, this dissertation research on the technologies for interoperability of heterogeneous enterprise application software.Firstly, this dissertation analyses the problems which should be solved when realizing interoperability, then an interoperability model is abstracted to describe the process of realizing the enterprise application software interoperability. Solutions of model mapping and model transformation problems are also given to form a framework of realizing the interoperability of heterogeneous enterprise application software.Secondly, this dissertation analyses the layer of enterprise interoperability and the problems on each layer. Based on the analysis, a definition of the integration point is abstracted, the definition is explained by the behaviors of integration point on each layer and their formally description. Then a top-down method to identify integration points and an implementation technology of the integration point based on SOA and semantic adapter are given. The integration point is used in the interoperability model to realize the interoperability of enterprise application software.Finally, based on the interoperability model and the integration point identification and realization method explained above, a material management system of SCM of an astronautic enterprise is designed and implemented to verify the theory research of this dissertation.
