Special Theme of Research in Information Systems Analysis and Design -II. Data Modeling or Functional Modeling - Which Comes First? An Experimental Comparison

Peretz Shoval, Judith Kabeli
2005 Communications of the Association for Information Systems  
We use the FOOM methodology as a platform for the experiment as it enables the creation of both a data model (a class diagram) and a functional model (hierarchical OO-DFDs), which are synchronized.  ...  The software analysis process consists of two main activities: data modeling and functional modeling.  ...  FOOM METHODOLOGY FOOM is a methodology for analysis and design of information systems that combines two essential software engineering paradigms: the functional-and the object-oriented (OO) approaches  ...

Integration of DFDs into a UML-based Model-driven Engineering Approach

João M. Fernandes, Johan Lilius, Dragos Truscan
2006 Journal of Software and Systems Modeling  
The main aim of this article is to discuss how the functional and the object-oriented views can be inter-played to represent the various modeling perspectives of embedded systems.  ...  The rationale behind the approach is that both views are important for modeling purposes in embedded systems environments, and thus a combined and integrated model is not only useful, but also fundamental  ...  Within the object-process methodology (OPM), the combined usage of objects and processes is recommended [25] .  ...
