This report proposes an integrated support methodology for constructing business models including employing new business models, transplanting existing business activities to computers, and decision making support in employing new environment of computers. In order to model enterprises and business activities and to implement them as software applications, two business repository in different granularities are devised based on ontologies: Business specification repository and Business software repository. By developing a framework, which transforms descriptions in Business specification repository into ones in Business software repository, our framework achieves the reuse of existing repositories of business activities and software libraries. We have implemented the prototype system by JAVA and confirmed that it supports us in various phases of business application development including business model manifestation, detailed business model definition and an implementation of business software applications.
