A user-centred requirements language for conceptual modelling in information systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Conceptual Modelling is an indispensable part of information system design and development. The main purpose of conceptual modelling is to improve communication between the parties involved in the development process. Current conceptual modelling tools are not end-user centric and their main foci are on technical aspects. Thus, this paper aims to propose a user-centered and cognitive requirements language for conceptual modelling based on mind maps, through model-driven and domain specific language techniques. Besides, to speed up the whole (agile) development process, this cognitive language also provides code and database schema generation and support for validation of conceptual modelling using model animation. Finally, we describe an industrial case applied to our cognitive requirements language.
