Course objectives
Systematic approach to understanding of the domain in which a service system will operate based on conceptual modeling. Semantics modeling of services underlying structures.
Learning outcomes
At the end of this course students should be able to:
understand the step-by-step service system modeling and evaluation;
use analytical patterns in data modeling and perform component consolidation;
manage knowledge and information;
understand conceptual systems, higher-order objects, and their role in service systems design;
work with abstract data types and use OOP and connection oriented paradigm;
design conceptual and behavioral models of a given domain.
Syllabus
  • Systematic approach to understanding of the domain in which a service system will operate based on conceptual modeling. Semantics modeling of services underlying structures.
  • Service systems and how to understand its domain
  • Transparent intensional logic and natural language analysis
  • Information, knowledge and their modeling
  • Concepts and objects, high order objects
  • HIT-attributes, definability, decomposability. Semantics and information capability
