USING UML CLASS DIAGRAM AS A KNOWLEDGE ENGINEERING TOOL

Thomas Raimbault, David Genest, Stéphane Loiseau

Abstract

UML class diagram is the de facto standard, including in Knowledge Engineering, for modeling structural knowledge of systems. Attaching importance to visual representation and based on a previous work, where we have given a logical defined extension of UML class diagram to represent queries and constraints into the UML visual environment, we present here how using the model of conceptuals graphs to answer queries and to check constraints in concrete terms.
