Information systems (IS) are socio-technical, man-machine systems that are used to provide effective support for the management and coordination of information and communication while maintaining economical efficiency (cf. (Davis and Olsen 1985), similarly (Hirschheim et al. 1995; Checkland and Scholes 1999)). According to Hirschheim et al. (1995) IS development is a change process undertaken in object systems in a number of environments by a development group to achieve objectives. To facilitate the exchange of thoughts, opinions, and beliefs about the IS development process and its objectives, the development group constructs representation forms of the object system. Conceptual modeling is considered to be a suitable means for creating such representation forms (Frank 1999).
