THE RE-USE OF EXPERIENCE THROUGH THE USE OF CBR IN INFORMATION SYSTEMS MODELLING

Paulo Tomé, Ernesto Costa, Luís Amaral

Abstract

Information Systems Development (ISD) is an important organization activity. IT professionals develop models that describe specific organizational aspects. The IT professionals experience plays an important role in the development of a model. Generally, IT professionals apply past experience acquired in the previous ISD processes. This paper describes a Case-Based-Reasoning (CBR) tool that enables the use of experience in the model development in the context of ISD process.
