Manuel Noguera, María V. Hurtado, María Luisa Rodríguez, Lawrence Chung, José Luis Garrido
2010 Science of Computer Programming  
We provide a mapping between the two, through a set of mapping rules, which allow for the capture of UML activity diagrams in an OWL-ontology.  ...  A mapping from the ontological entities involved in the description of activities to entities of a CPN model is also defined.  ...  Part of this work was completed during a visit to the Department of Computer Science at the University of Texas at Dallas.  ...

Why Johnny can't model

Robert France
2009 Journal of Software and Systems Modeling  
Similarly, learning how to model is not the same as learning the syntax and semantics of a modeling language such as the UML.  ...  A good modeler should also be a skilled programmer. A great modeler is invariably an expert programmer. On the other hand, good programmers are not necessarily good modelers.  ...  In the regular paper "A UML and OWL Description of Bunge's Upper-Level Ontology Model" the author Joerg Evermann goes back to a high-level ontology which was published by Mario Bunge in the 1970s.  ...

Making Data Meaningful: The Business Intelligence Model and Its Formal Semantics in Description Logics [chapter]

Jennifer Horkoff, Alex Borgida, John Mylopoulos, Daniele Barone, Lei Jiang, Eric Yu, Daniel Amyot
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Significantly, we also provide a formal semantics of BIM using a subset of the OWL Description Logic (DL).  ...  In this paper we consolidate and rationalize earlier work on BIM, giving a precise syntax, reducing the number of fundamental concepts by using meta-attributes, and introducing the novel notion of "pursuit  ...  constructs. b) Specific BIM models can also be translated according to a schema we offer into extensions of the upper ontology.  ...

Ontology-driven conceptual modeling: A systematic literature mapping and review

Michaël Verdonck, Frederik Gailly, Sergio de Cesare, Geert Poels
2015 Applied Ontology  
Ontology-driven conceptual modeling (ODCM) is still a relatively new research domain in the field of information systems and there is still much discussion on how the research in ODCM should be performed  ...  To understand and identify any gaps and research opportunities, our literature study is composed of both a systematic mapping study and a systematic review study.  ...  UML, ORM, ER, REA, OWL) (Guizzardi & Halpin, 2008) .  ...

Semi-automatic Conceptual Data Modeling Using Entity and Relationship Instance Repositories [chapter]

Ornsiri Thonggoom, Il-Yeol Song, Yuan An
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This can be developed into two levels: domain ontology and large scale or upper level ontology.  ...  For review and comparison of upper level ontologies see suggest that a strategy for developing ontologies would be to reuse large scale or upper level ontologies to create domain ontologies or knowledge  ...  Figure A.7 A Screenshot of Step 6 in EIPW Step 7: Identify relationships, which are not detected by RIR, by applying a modeling rule.  ...

2011 IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics  
This paper focuses on complexity reduction mechanisms that affect the abstract syntax of a process model, i.e. the structure of a process model.  ...  Abstract-As a result of the growing adoption of Business Process Management (BPM) technology different stakeholders need to understand and agree upon the process models that are used to configure BPM systems  ...  The BWW framework [116] refers to Wand and Weber's tailoring and application of Bunge's ontology [21] to information systems.  ...

Business Process Modeling- A Comparative Analysis

Jan Recker, Michael Rosemann, Marta Indulska, Peter Green
2009 Journal of the AIS  
A widely established way of determining the effectiveness and efficiency of modeling techniques is by way of representational analysis.  ...  Our analysis uncovers and explores representational root causes for a number of shortcomings that remain in process modeling practice, such as lack of process decomposition and integration of business  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank the editors and reviewers of CAiSE 2006 who provided stimulating feedback on an earlier version of this paper.  ...

Using ontologies in the context of knowledge management systems

Palash Bera
2007
It is suggested that the use of philosophically-based ontological principles can help generate guidelines for developing conceptual models using OWL.  ...  Formal ontologies are often specified in ontological languages such as Web Ontology Language (OWL).  ...  Bunge's Ontology Bunge's ontology (1977) includes a set of high-level constructs and specifies certain relationships of things, properties and classes.  ...

A prioritisation of near-term developments is also proposed. The aim is to direct and foster debate about how the UEML should evolve.  ...  The Unified Enterprise Modelling Language (UEML) is an intermediate language that aims to support integrated use of enterprise and information systems (IS) models expressed using different languages.  ...  Acknowledgement This work is partially funded by the Commission of the European Communities under the sixth framework programme: the Interop Network of Excellence, IST-508011.  ...
