Automated Semantic Analyses of Conceptual Models

Becker J, Pfeiffer D


Abstract
Conceptual models are an important repository for knowledge in companies and public institutions. The retrieval of this knowledge can prepare reorganisations projects and support IT investment decisions. However, so far this information source has hardly been utilized in automated analyses. We argue that if modelling grammars are endowed with specific characteristics the semantics of the resulting models can be analysed in an automated manner. Based on the conceptual modelling grammar PICTURE we demonstrate that knowledge retrieval with conceptual models is facilitated.
