Finding the right level of abstraction

Abstract

Today, modelers must rely on their instinct and experience to decide how much detail of a system is worth being modeled. This ad-hoc modeling may result in models that are either too abstract or too detailed for their intended use. We propose to investigate objective measurement of a model’s abstractness and systematic guidance to attain the right level of abstraction. Such a contribution has the potential to improve the quality of models and reduce the amount of time needed for modeling activities.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
