Finding the right level of abstraction


Jeanneret, Cédric (2009). Finding the right level of abstraction. In: Doctoral Symposium of the 17th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE '09), Atlanta, USA, 31 August 2009 - 4 September 2009.

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.
