Description:
This workshop uses a case study to help you explore two standard approaches to conceptual modeling: the Unified Modeling Language and Information Engineering. It is designed to be prescriptive as well as descriptive. This means that best practice will be emphasized through explanation and application. You will discover what should be done as well as how to do it, and why.
Prerequisites:
Six months or more of practical business analysis experience. Familiarity with software systems analysis, design, and implementation is also recommended.

Why Modeling Is Important
Key Abstractions
Now for the hard question: is a system reality, or is it a description of reality?
