Conceptual modeling is key to the improvement of complicated platforms, since it presents the most important verbal exchange ability among platforms builders, end-usersandcustomers.Conceptualmodelingprovideslanguages,methods and instruments to understandandrepresentthe applicationdomain;to elicitate,concep- alizeandformalizesystemrequirementsanduserneeds;tocommunicatesystems designs to all stakeholders; to officially ascertain and validate process designs on excessive degrees of abstractions; and to reduce ambiguities in approach improvement. in the beginning, conceptual modeling customarily addressed data-intensive details s- tems and contributed to information modeling and database software engineering. the world of conceptual modeling has now matured to surround all types of software parts corresponding to e-applications (including e-business and e-learning), web-based structures (including the semantic internet and ubiquitous systems), existence technological know-how and geographic purposes. the yearly foreign convention on Conceptual Modeling serves because the most effective discussion board for proposing and discussing researchand purposes in all - eas associatedwith conceptual modeling. This year,the demand Papers solicited contributions facing logical and philosophical foundations of conceptual modeling, info modeling techniques together with ontologies, correctness in modeling, web-based and cellular info platforms, semi-structured info and XML, details and database integration, info retrieval, association andevaluation,designmethodologiesandtools,reuse,re-engineeringandreverse engineering, caliber insurance in conceptual modeling, conceptual swap and evolution, facts warehousing and knowledge mining, spatial and temporal modeling, company procedure and work?ow modeling, wisdom administration, requisites elicitation, and complicated applications.

The correct therapy and selection of the elemental info buildings is a crucial and intricate half within the technique of software development. Algebraic equipment offer ideas for info abstraction and the based specification, validation and research of information constructions. This quantity originates from a workshop prepared inside of ESPRIT venture 432 METEOR, An built-in Formal method of business software program improvement, held in Mierlo, The Netherlands, September 1989.

Sample text

Once major fact types have been defined, aggregation hierarchies are imposed upon dimensions to enable additional granularities. In what follows we present a stepwise acquisition of the multidimensional perspective of a process. Determining the Facts. , drawn from the same set of dimensions, applications dealing with multiple heterogeneous process types have to place each type into a separate cube. , a routine examination of a patient, the corresponding fact entries would be stored separately from surgical facts.

8 To delete the activity and not only its executing agent would imply a slight variation in the ASM below. Modeling Workflow Patterns from First Principles 19 Besides the parameter for the set Activity of subprocesses among which to choose, we see here as second parameter a ChoiceCriterion,9 used to “choose multiple alternatives from a given set of alternatives” that have to be executed together. It may take workflow control data as arguments. Using the non deterministic choose construct for ASMs yields the following formalization: MultiChoice(Activity, ChoiceCriterion) = choose A ⊆ Activity ∩ ChoiceCriterion forall act ∈ A act An equivalent wording for this machine explicitly names a choice function, say select , which applied to Activity ∩ ChoiceCriterion yields a subset of activities chosen for execution: Choice(Activity, ChoiceCriterion, select ) = forall act ∈ select (Activity ∩ ChoiceCriterion) act The Exclusive Choice pattern is described in [8] as follows, where the additional assumption is that each time an exclusive choice point is reached (read: ExclChoice is executed), the decision criterion yields exactly one a ∈ Activity that fulfills it: A point in the workflow process where, based on a decision or workflow control data, one of several branches is chosen.
