Complementary Use of Modeling Grammars

Peter F. Green, Michael Rosemann, Marta Indulska, Jan Recker
2011 Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems  
We provide an empirical test of the extended theory using survey data and structured interviews about the use of traditional and structured analysis grammars within an automated tool environment.  ...  We find that users of the analyzed tool combine grammars to overcome the ontological incompleteness that exists in each grammar.  ...  Last, we studied responses from end users, gathered through a survey and structured interview.  ...
