Project Description

When information systems are being built, systems analysts document their understanding of the users work domain via conceptual models. These models are diagrammatic representations of the important semantics of the domain that must be implemented in the information system. Once a conceptual model has been built, an analyst then seeks to check that it has no errors or omissions. This project tests theoretically-based predictions about how conceptual models should be built to facilitate their validation and which methods of validating conceptual models are likely to be most effective.
