Lina Nemuraite, Lina Ceponiene, Gediminas Vedrickas
2008 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
In this paper, possibilities of representing business rules by UML&OCL models and their applicability in modern development processes are investigated 1 .  ...  In practice, business rules often are managed by software developers and system analysts; more straightforward and safer processes for capturing and modifying business rules are related with visual business  ...  In section 4, applicability of UML&OCL models for representation of business rules is analysed.  ...

Using UML state diagrams for visual modeling of business rules

Konrad Kulakowski, Grzegorz J. Nalepa
2008 International Multiconference on Computer Science and Information Technology  
In this paper we would like to describe how UML state diagrams might be used for business rules formulation and visual modeling.  ...  Recently, in response to growing market demand, several different techniques of business rules representation have been created. Some of them try to present business rules in a visual manner.  ...  PRR has been developed to address the need for a representation of production rules in UML models (business rules modeling as part of a modeling process).  ...

Transformation Rules for Translating Business Rules to OCL Constraints [chapter]

Imran S. Bajwa, Mark G. Lee
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
However, OCL is the only medium used to write constraints for UML models but manual translation of SBVR rules to OCL constraints is difficult, complex and time consuming.  ...  Business rules and constraints are the key components in the skeletons of software components.  ...  The transformation rules are derived from the abstract syntax of SBVR and OCL. Presented approach is fully automated as user provides only the input business rules and target UML model.  ...

SBVR vs OCL: A Comparative Analysis of Standards [article]

Imran Sarwar Bajwa, Behzad Bordbar, Mark Lee
2013 arXiv   pre-print
Business constraints/rules can be written using SBVR (Semantics of Business Vocabulary and Rules) while OCL (Object Constraint Language) is the well-known medium for writing software constraints.  ...  Similarly, in business modelling, designers have to model business processes using business constraints (business rules).  ...  RUP based UML can provide a systematic approach for visual representation of a business model. Here OCL will play an important role as a constraint language for the RUP based UML models.  ...

FORMAL MODELLING OF BUSINESS RULES: WHAT KIND OF TOOL TO USE?

Sandra Lovrenčić, Kornelije Rabuzin, Ruben Picek
2006 Journal of Information and Organizational Sciences  
Business rules are today essential parts of a business system model. But presently, there are still various approaches to, definitions and classifications of this concept.  ...  They represent ontology modelling and UML, nowadays widely used standard for object-oriented modelling. A simple example is also presented.  ...  Business rules were at first and still are recorded in forms of simple sentences. Then, various models for their representation were developed.  ...

Diana Kalibatienė, Olegas Vasilecas
2012 Informatica  
In this paper, we present the approach how ontology axioms can be used for business rules implementation.  ...  Yet, if many methods of ontology based conceptual data modelling have been proposed, only few attempts have been made to ontology axioms based modelling of business rules, which make an integral part of  ...  Research interests: business rules and ontology based information systems development and conceptual modelling.

Imran Sarwar Bajwa, Behzad Bordbar, Kyriakos Anastasakis, Mark Lee
2012 Seventh International Conference on Digital Information Management (ICDIM 2012)  
Systems development starts with the requirements gathering phase, which usually comprises of a textual description of the system requirements provided in Natural Language (NL).  ...  It is therefore evident that there is a clear scope for incorporating NL Processing techniques in Multi-Paradigm Modeling.  ...  The designed system can find out the required information to generate a SBVR representation and then transform to a complete SBVR rule, after mapping with the input UML model.  ...

Translating natural language constraints to OCL

Imran Sarwar Bajwa, Mark Lee, Behzad Bordbar
2012 Journal of King Saud University: Computer and Information Sciences  
In NL to OCL transformation, Semantics of Business Vocabulary and Rules (SBVR) standard is used as an intermediate representation due to a couple of reasons: first of all, SBVR is based on higher order  ...  Object Constraint Language (OCL) is the only available language to annotate the Unified Modeling Language (UML) based conceptual schema (CS) of a software application.  ...  Finally, the SBVR representation is mapped to OCL using model transformation technology. The presented approach will boost the acceptance of OCL in software designers and developers community.  ...

Conceptual modeling using domain ontologies

Frederik Gailly, Geert Poels
2010 Proceedings of the 10th Workshop on Domain-Specific Modeling - DSM '10  
The usefulness of the approach for the quality assurance of conceptual schemas is demonstrated by evaluating the domainspecific quality of a sample of UML class diagrams intended as enterprise models.  ...  The approach is illustrated for enterprise modeling using UML and the Resource Event Agent (REA) enterprise ontology.  ...  ODIS may involve the use of the ontology at run-time (i.e. within the information system) or at development-time (i.e. for developing the information system).  ...
