Modeling the purposes of models


Jeanneret, Cédric; Glinz, Martin; Baar, Thomas (2012). Modeling the purposes of models. In: Modellierung 2012, Bamberg, Deutschland, 14 March 2012 - 16 March 2012, 11-26.

Abstract

Today, the purpose of a model is often kept implicit. The lack of explicit statements about a model's purpose hinders both its creation and its (re)use. In this paper, we adapt two goal modeling techniques, the Goal-Question-Metric paradigm and KAOS, an intentional modeling language, so that the purpose of a model can be explicitly stated and operationalized. Using some examples, we present how these approaches can document a model's purpose so that this model can be validated, improved and used correctly.

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.
