Merging Object and Process Diagrams for Business Information Modeling [article]

Patrick Chénais
2008 arXiv   pre-print
We will then propose merging class diagrams and business process modeling to achieve a necessary transparency.  ...  While developing an information system for the University of Bern, we were faced with two major issues: managing software changes and adapting Business Information Models.  ...  We presume that the merging of process and object models led to a better understanding and acceptance because all elements of the evaluation process could be shown on the model with their relationships  ...

How to Tame a Very Large ER Diagram (Using Link Analysis and Force-Directed Drawing Algorithms) [chapter]

Yannis Tzitzikas, Jean-Luc Hainaut
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Specifically, this method takes as input an ER diagram and returns a smaller (top-k) diagram that consists of the major entity and relationship types of the initial diagram.  ...  The experimental evaluation on large diagrams of real world applications proved the effectiveness of this technique.  ...  Acknowledgements The first author wants to thank Tonia Dellaporta for the several fruitful and really enjoyable discussions on this issue.  ...

Urban Operating Systems: Diagramming the City

Simon Marvin, Andrés Luque-Ayala
2017 International Journal of Urban and Regional Research  
Arguing that an analysis of the interface between the urban and IT requires a broader historical and theoretical perspective, the article traces the ways in which the city has been diagrammed as a space  ...  ' urbanism (Deleuze and Guattari, 1987) , the Urban OS appears as an emerging urban diagram introducing an informational diagrammatic of control.  ...  The emphasis on classification also has an ontological function, by determining com po nents and establishing a set of relationships, thus creating entities and boundaries.  ...

Making Graph-Based Diagrams Work in Sound: The Role of Annotation

Andy Brown, Robert Stevens, Steve Pettifer
2013 Human-Computer Interaction  
This paper proposes that differing types of annotation offer a powerful and flexible technique for transferring the benefits of graph based diagrams, as well as for reducing disorientation while moving  ...  around the graph and for tackling some of the inherent disadvantages of using sound.  ...  . 3 A version did allow creation and editing of graphs, but apparently not annotation. 4 In the UML diagrams studied, entities are necessarily differentiated by class names. 5 Spatially, using a tactile  ...

Formative computer based assessment in diagram based domains

Colin A. Higgins, Brett Bligh
2006 ACM SIGCSE Bulletin  
The three extensions are novel extensions for free-form CBA which allow the assessment of the aesthetic layout of student diagrams, the marking of student solutions where multiple model solutions are acceptable  ...  This research argues that the formative assessment of student coursework in freeform, diagram-based domains can be automated using CBA techniques in a way which is both feasible and useful.  ...  Feedback is provided in terms of a mark and a series of entity-relationship diagrams that form the MMUs of the model solution.  ...
