Ontology for SEAM Service Models

Gorica Tapandjieva, Alain Wegmann

Abstract

A service system is a popular concept in academia and industry. At the same time, it is a challenging concept to represent, due to its recursive nature and difficulty to relate it to entities in reality. In this paper we present an ontology for modeling service systems with the SEAM systemic method. As part of the ontology, we provide a meta-model, well-formedness rules and formalization in the Alloy language. The ontology we propose represents an updated and minimalistic version of the existing SEAM modeling language ontology that puts an emphasis on the behavior. We validated the ontology by modeling around 20 case studies. The running example we use throughout this paper is one of these case studies.
