## Complexity Awareness is Cost Awareness

If “engineering is producing an artifact to cost”, then how can modelling contribute to it? Continue reading

## Complexity Aware Modelling II

Complexity aware people are able to recognize complexity, and regard it over things like size. How do they recognise? Mainly by modelling! Continue reading

## Complexity Aware Modelling I

Wow – I discovered that beyond the actual technology there is something called business logic, and – most surprising – it was not trivial! (on Complexity Aware Modelling) Continue reading

## Model Transformation in Analysis

An analyst has two main ways of making use of Model Transformation in requirements analysis: applying rules to models and keeping views consistent. Continue reading

## Are your Requirements complete?

Completeness is one big issue in requirements engineering. Here’s how this can be approached by systematic analysis. To me this is already a basic application of modeling and its benefits. Continue reading

## Meanings of “Model”

On the different usages of ‘model’ in the sense of Business Process Model or Entity Relationship Model, and in mathematical Model Theory.

## Why finiteness counts

To study computation we need a theory of finite structures. Neil Immerman’s quotation, illustrated by Hilbert’s hotel. Continue reading

## Product Owner role in Custom Development?

Product Owner responsible for iterations in individual software development? Good idea, if(f) requirements are the dominant iterations trigger. Continue reading

## The Future of Software Development

We lack tools or languages to express and reason about these distributed, extended, fragmented systems. This can be achieved by modeling. Continue reading
