A CONCERN-ORIENTED AND ONTOLOGY-BASED APPROACH TO CONSTRUCTING FACETS OF INFORMATION SYSTEMS

Crenguţa Bogdan, Luca Dan Şerbǎnaţi

Abstract

A concern-oriented analysis approach for developing information systems is presented. The method uses the concerns of various stakeholders of an information system (IS) for partitioning the system conceptual domain in stakeholder-oriented sub-domains. Mental representations descriptions of stakeholders’ beliefs and knowledge related to each concern are identified and on their basis, a domain ontology can be created. Furthermore, facets of the future IS are constructed by an abstraction mechanism applied on the domain ontology.
