Conceptual Modeling

Patterns

Building a conceptual model is much more than placing concepts, associations, and attributes together. Frequently the model does not work not for being wrong, but for being too complex to maintain. Analysis patterns consist of solutions already tested that can resolve families of recurrent problems. When adequately used these patterns may reduce significantly the complexity of an otherwise naïve conceptual model. This chapter presents and sometimes reinterprets some patterns such as high cohesion, quantity, strategy, account, temporal, and others.
