In analogy to classical engineering disciplines, this contribution discusses characteristics and requirements of an engineering approach to enterprise architecture design and proposes components and a top-level structure of an approach to address these requirements. The proposed components can partially be realized by existing work; partially they lay out the research path towards a mature engineering discipline of EA design. Core components of the proposed approach have been applied and evaluated at Deutsche Leasing AG, a globally operating financial service provider based in Germany.
