A Methodology for Joint Data and Functional Analysis

Conference paper
Part of the Informatik-Fachberichte book series (INFORMATIK, volume 143)


In this paper we propose an integrated approach to the analysis of data and functions in informaion systems. We show how data and functions can be analyzed jointly, in terms of the models used for their representation, the strategies followed and the qualities that should be achieved. The proposed methodology is finally applied to a case study.
