Controlling the System’s Behavior

  • Dov Dori


Control in the context of conceptual modeling is the ability to determine the flow of processes and how they transform objects under various conditions and circumstances. Several control structures enable us to determine how the system will behave over time. These include Boolean objects for branching and control modifiers—condition and event indicators that are added to procedural links and augment their semantics. In this chapter we discuss and show how control structures are used to model system behavior.
