Learning Goals

Computers are the most important tool for automating tasks in businesses. A key prequisite for using computers for automated processing is to create suitable models of all relevant objects and activities in the domain of interest, e.g. data structures and processes.

In this lecture and tutorial, students will learn the theoretical foundations and practical skills of designing, maintaining and using data and process models in information systems. First, the impact of modeling on the alignment between the IT and the business sphere of enterprises is being discussed. Then, common notations for conceptual structures and data (e.g. ERM, UML class diagrams, and ORM) and processes (e.g. Petri nets, EPCs, BPMN, and UML Activity diagrams) will be introduced and applied. Additionally, the impact of reference models on the integration of systems and organizations will be discussed.
