Where has PERA Been Applied?


PERA has been in wide use by industry for over a decade. We are therefore not aware of each industry which has applied all or part of this material. We can, however, provide the following list of example industries which we know have used PERA Master Planning and/or the PERA Enterprise Reference Model.

If you would like more information on one of the above, please let us know, and we will attempt to assist you and/or facilitate a discussion with someone involved in that application. However, it should be noted that the Master Planning and Information Architecture of an enterprise are potentially sensitive and confidential so this may not always be feasible, especially between companies who are potential competitors.
