OMiLAB FSEGA: open models for Business Informatics

Research focus of OMiLAB-FSEGA:

The recent literature brought into discussion a reframing of Conceptual Modeling and its shifting role in the Digital-first Era, from “representation” to “mediation”. This shift is seen as a manifestation of the “ontological reversal” phenomenon. For more details, see the papers:

We aim to operationalize this notion with the help of the Purpose-Specificity Framework for modeling methods that, instead of working within the traditional dichotomy of „general purpose” vs. „domain-specific”, treat purpose and specificity as orthogonal dimensions. This generates a design space for modeling methods, allowing them to shift agilely according to (possibly evolving) „modeling method requirements” that must be explicitly managed as a distinct category of requirements. Knowledge Graphs can act as a mediator between the human-oriented representations captured in diagrammatic models and machine behavior that becomes “aware” of those models.



For more details see the chapter Buchmann, R. A., The Purpose-Specificity Framework for Domain-Specific Modeling Methods.

The engineering methodology underlying our research is based on:
