Understanding Semantic Completeness in Rule Frameworks for Modeling Cardinality Constraints

Faiz Currim, Sudha Ram
2018 Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures - An International Journal  
We believe our work demonstrates a unique approach to establishing conceptual framework completeness and enables standardization of rule semantics which in turn allows for semantics-based (as opposed to  ...  One limitation to widespread adoption of such modeling is variance in standards and semantics of rules. We consider cardinality constraints—a useful and integral part of conceptual database design.  ...  DOI:10.18417/ Understanding Semantic Completeness in Rule Frameworks for Modeling Cardinality Constraints 301 Special Issue on Conceptual Modelling in Honour of Heinrich C.  ...

A comprehensive framework for modeling set-based business rules during conceptual database design

Sudha Ram, Vijay Khatri
2005 Information Systems  
We present a taxonomy for set-based business rules, and describe an overarching framework for modeling rules that constrain the cardinality of sets.  ...  The proposed framework results in various types constraints, i.e., attribute, class, participation, projection, co-occurrence, appearance and overlapping, on a semantic model that supports abstractions  ...  However, extant conceptual models provide limited support for set-based business rules, more specifically, rules that constrain the structure or cardinality of sets.  ...

A Structured Approach To Teaching Cardinalities In The AIS Class

Guido L. Geerts
2011 Review of Business Information Systems (RBIS)  
Such a generalization requires the existence of a semantic framework, and the REA model is used to define cardinality heuristics for enterprise systems.  ...  During the semantic phase, students learn to define business rules in terms of cardinalities. Heuristics help students recognize domain-specific stereotypical cardinality patterns.  ...  Semantic definition of cardinalities The objective of the semantic phase is for students to learn how to use cardinalities to define business rules as part of an enterprise model.  ...

OWL DL vs. OWL flight

Jos de Bruijn, Rubén Lara, Axel Polleres, Dieter Fensel
2005 Proceedings of the 14th international conference on World Wide Web - WWW '05  
In this paper we present OWL Flight, which is loosely based on OWL, but the semantics is grounded in Logic Programming rather than Description Logics, and it borrows the constraint-based modeling style  ...  We argue that different applications on the Semantic Web require different styles of modeling and thus both types of languages are required for the Semantic Web.  ...  SWRL (Semantic Web Rule Language) has been proposed as a rule language for the Semantic Web, layered on top of OWL DL.  ...

Invariance Criteria as Meta-Constraints

Gil Sagi
2021 Bulletin of Symbolic Logic  
In previous work, I proposed a framework of "semantic constraints" for model-theoretic consequence which does not rely on a strict distinction between logical and nonlogical terms, but rather on a range  ...  In this paper I show how invariance criteria can be generalized so as to apply to semantic constraints on models.  ...  I(Even) ∩ I(P rime) = {2} So the generalized criterion, although weak, is not completely powerless in ruling out semantic constraints.  ...

2009 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
Such models aid developers in understanding, creating, and evolving application code. We present four exemplar FSMLs and a method for engineering new FSMLs.  ...  FSMLs model abstractions and rules of application programming interfaces (APIs) exposed by frameworks and can express models of how applications use APIs.  ...  This research was supported by IBM Centers for Advanced Studies in Ottawa and Toronto, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and the Ontario Research Fund.  ...

Completeness and consistency analysis for evolving knowledge bases

Mohammad Rifat Ahmmad Rashid, Giuseppe Rizzo, Marco Torchiano, Nandana Mihindukulasooriya, Oscar Corcho, Raúl García-Castro
2019 Journal of Web Semantics  
We observed that the best performing model in our experimental setup is the Random Forest, reaching an F1 score greater than 90% for minimum and maximum cardinality and 84% for range constraints.  ...  We also assessed the performance of our consistency analysis by using five learning models over three sub-tasks, namely minimum cardinality, maximum cardinality, and range constraint.  ...  For minimum cardinality, the Random Forest model reached 91% F1 score where it achieved 96% precision. Conversely, the Neural Network model reached 90% F1 score for range constraints.  ...
