Conceptual Modelling of Behaviour
- Department of Software Engineering
The subject is focused on methodology of conceptual modeling of behavior in the context of business engineering and software engineering. In the course we focus on theoretical and practical aspects of significant approaches to ontological behaviour modeling, such as UFO-B, BORM and DEMO and their application in enterprise engineering, software engineering and ontological analysis of complex domains. Different levels of description of social, socio-technical and technical systems behaviour and their context are discussed.
There are no formal prerequisites, as for the content, the subject is a sequel to BIE-KOM, BI-ZPI and MI-MEP.
