Reflections on Abstractions: Subsumption I
We’re going to look at a subsumptional mapping from lhs original to rhs model. We will get four cases of subsumption as in figure (strictest cases), which now can be developed into a continuum with the four cases as corner points. Continue reading

Human centric Modelling
There is a modelling at the lowend, that we use every day a million times, and there is modelling at the highend with comprehensive concepts like UML, MDD etc. Both are good to have. Perhaps approaching the modelling topic from the lowend would make it easier accessible for most of the software practitioners. Continue reading
