The paper presents an application of the aerobic living-organism (ALO) conceptual model developed by the author in a previous paper, to perform an analysis of an Italian small enterprise producing and assembling components for industrial and civil applications. Starting from the ALO enterprise schemata an agent-based simulation model was built using the Starlogo (R) environment to support reengineering decisions. The application presented proved its potential usefulness into practical decisional tasks. Criticalities of the implementation of the ALO conceptual model are also discussed, based on the experience gained into the specific application, driving some general hints for future researches.
