Random thoughts on multi-level conceptual modelling
Conceptual modelling has a lengthy history. In the context of software engineering, over the last three decades, conceptual modelling has moved from largely being used for data representation, especially in databases, to applications in metamodelling, ontologies, method engineering, standards and business process management. Here, I reflect, somewhat randomly, upon some of these issues and possible future application/research areas for conceptual modelling. Of prime importance must be the synergistic exploration of model quality, a topic poorly represented in the conceptual modelling literature. © 2011 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
