Categories of semantic Models by Stachowiak
Categorisation by example of semantic models, i.e. models as we use them in software engineering etc, according to Herbert Stachowiak. Continue reading

Stachowiak on semantic Requirements Modelling
Excerpt of Herbert Stachowiak’s “Allgemeine Modelltheorie” (General Model Theory). Although this is on empiricalscientific models, it provides a foundation of semantic requirements modelling. Continue reading

Modelling with Classes: Square and Rectangle revisited
Classic problem in classmodelling: how to express that a square is a special kind of rectangle? In order to deepen understanding, let us scrutinize the situation a bit closer here, using logical/ structural foundations of modelling: Continue reading
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
Modelling Theory and Abstraction Awareness in 2012
Little collection of Tweets on Modelling and Abstraction in 2012: Model Thinking, Application, Conceptual and Formal Foundations etc. 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

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