A lot has been written on the differences between Craftsman and Engineer. Recently I came across a simple example by Hofstadter & Sander, that nicely shows the basic difference in thinking: Continue reading →
On Modelling Theory, Abstraction Awareness and Complexity aware Modelling.
Modelling theory is about the mapping from real world to models with main focus on software engineering and related areas like Business Process Modelling. Abstraction is seen as the core of modelling, thus Abstraction Awareness is closely related to Modelling Theory. Also Complexity Aware Modelling is close to Abstraction Awareness and Modelling Theory, since it it about applying results of complexity theory and finite model theory to software modelling, business modelling, systems engineering and software engineering.
