Meaning Based Modeling

This is a work in progress….

After four decades of entity relationship modeling I finally gave up on creating conceptual models using E/R tools and just went “phyiscal”. I have been accused of being a physical modeler – a criticism I accept without reservation. I’ve also been told by more than one project leader that I was the best data modeler they’ve ever had on a project.

Meaning based modeling is my answer to the need for a conceptual modeling approach.

Defining concepts consists of 5 key activities

  1. Naming
  2. Classification
  3. Description
  4. Categorization
  5. Relating
