9780135148792: Conceptual Modelling (Prentice Hall International Series in Computer Science)

Providing a systematic treatment of conceptual modelling, this work is illustrates the role of conceptual modelling in the larger contexts of requirements and enterprise engineering. Conceptual modelling is based on a view that certain relevant aspects of systems can be represented by objects, their attributes, and their relationships. The opening chapters introduce a foundation for conceptual modelling based on notions from logic and linguistics. This foundation is used as the basis of an executable specification language for conceptual modelling. Methodology is also presented in depth, through an examination of reusable design patterns and techniques for declarative rule elicitation and representation. Quality criteria, database design and schema integration are also given a thorough investigation. The book concludes with a chapter on the use of conceptual modelling in enterprise engineering. A supplementary collection of study material includes large case studies, computerized quizzes, software for a graphical editor, and a meta interpreter in Prolog is available.
