Conceptual models play an increasingly important role in all phases of the information systems life cycle.Indian Ocean Studies: Cultural, ...
Textbook Despite being vital for developing information systems, the modeling process is often resource consuming and faulty. Reference Modeling for Business Systems Analysis addresses the problems by covering methodological issues and reference models for several industries, and introduces concepts and techniques with concrete examples. Reference Modeling for Business Systems Analysis covers all aspects of reference modeling, and provides foundations for model-driven systems development. This book helps to efficiently reuse conceptual models and explains best practice models for manufacturing, retail, and electronic business.
