Preliminary knowledge

Enterprise Modelling I: Tutorial (Applying Methods and Tools)


In this advanced course on enterprise modelling, students learn how to deal with modelling challenges in among others, such areas as object-oriented modelling and meta modelling. As an integral part of the module Enterprise Modelling II, the course applies the theoretical considerations on enterprise modelling (taught in the corresponding lecture) to hands-on modelling tasks. Students engage in modelling exercises, discuss their proposed solutions with each other and develop the advanced modelling competences essential to Wirtschaftsinformatik graduates. The course is based on modelling exercises, class discussions, student presentations, and literature research work undertaken outside of class. Successful completion of the course will prepare students to design, present, analyze, and evaluate different types of models, e.g., object-oriented models, meta-models as well as partial enterprise models. Knowledge of software development methods from the lecture will be enhanced and their respective strengths and weaknesses through the introduction of application examples identified. As a result, a student should be able to decide whether the application of some method is appropriate given the requirements of a specific context. In addition, the students will get to know new trends/developments in the enterprise modelling/conceptual modelling field.
