Abstract Organizations are being highly pressured to increase their competitiveness in order to deal with dynamic and turbulent markets. The development of an intelligent manufacturing system has been identified as an effective way to increase the competitiveness of enterprises. Traditional companies need models, skills, processes, and technologies to face the challenges imposed by today´s highly competitive markets, which require constant innovation. Sensing, Smart, and Sustainable (S^3) Enterprises play an important role in the digitization of strategies, decisions, and operations. They become efficient in facing the challenges intrinsic to the digital economy and intelligent manufacturing by applying the concepts of detection and monitoring, intelligence, and sustainability. The extant literature indicates the need for the development of methods and enterprise models that portray the reality of S^3 Enterprises. This paper presents an enterprise model to facilitate the formalization of S^3 Enterprises and help understand the dynamics of their operations. Applying the For Enterprise Modeling (4EM) method, this proposed enterprise model documents the goals, business rules, processes, and concepts of S^3 Enterprises. The contribution of this paper is the identification of guiding principles that allow companies interested in applying the S^3 concepts to have a basic reference mapped through perspectives of different knowledge domains.
