The Conceptual Model Is The Code. Why Not? [chapter]

Oscar Pastor, Vicente Pelechano
2013 Seminal Contributions to Information Systems Engineering  
The model should be the code of the application, and a conceptual modelling programming style should become a reality.  ...  The selection of the paper entitled "OO-METHOD: An OO Software Production Environment Combining Conventional and Formal Methods" for this book on Advanced Information Systems Engineering allows us to reflect  ...  Conclusions Producing a sound information system design and implementing such design into a software product of high quality sounds simple, but it is still a nightmare for Software and Information Systems  ...

The Logic of Design as a Conceptual Logic of Information

Luciano Floridi
2017 Minds and Machines  
In this article, I outline a logic of design of a system as a specific kind of conceptual logic of the design of the model of a system, that is, the blueprint that provides information about the system  ...  Strictly speaking, neither is a conceptual logic of information about (or modelling) the conditions of feasibility of a system, that is, neither is a logic of information as a logic of design.  ...  reproduction in any medium, provided you give appropriate credit to the original author(s) and the source, provide a link to the Creative Commons license, and indicate if changes were made.  ...

Conceptual Modeling in Law: An Interdisciplinary Research Agenda

Ralf Knackstedt, Marcel Heddier, Jörg Becker
2014 Communications of the Association for Information Systems  
The article describes how different approaches from the IS field of conceptual modeling should be transferred to the legal domain to enhance comprehensibility of legal regulations and contracts.  ...  Researchers from both disciplines, IS and Law, that are interested in this field should use the research agenda to position their research and to derive new and innovative research questions.  ...  It is equally important for an IS developer or business process designer to know the rationale behind an information systems architecture, a specific program part, or a business process.  ...
