Integrated Object Modelling: An Executable Specification Framework for Business Analysis and Information System Design
A new foundation for information system development is required in order to facilitate systems with a better organizational fit, increased user friendliness and improved flexibility. This study describes an integrated approach to business and information system development that permits this.
The specification framework developed enables vertical integration of business, user and developer modelling worlds, as well as horizontal integration of data, behaviour and process perspectives. Both forms of integration are addressed on the basis of an object oriented approach, with an underlying mathematical foundation in high level Petri nets.
On the basis of this theory, integrated CASE tools can provide new ways of visualizing and manipulating specification models. Model execution permits simulation and testing of business activities, user interface and system design by means of interactive graphical animation.
