An inspection approach for conceptual models of the mission space in a domain specific notation

Tanrıöver, Ö. Özgür
An inspection approach is proposed for improving the quality of conceptual models developed in a domain specific notation. First, the process of identification of desirable properties of conceptual models in a domain specific notation is described. Intra- and interview properties are considered. Semantic properties are defined considering the conceptual modeling notation. A systematic inspection process is proposed for checking semantic properties of different types of diagrams and of the relations between these diagrams. This process is applied to two real mission space conceptual models. With the proposed inspection approach, it is possible to identify subtle semantic issues which are not identified by many of the contemporary UML CASE tools and other inspection methods.


A framework for ranking and categorizing medical documents
Al Zamıl, Mohammed GH. I.; Betin Can, Aysu; Department of Information Systems (2010)
In this dissertation, we present a framework to enhance the retrieval, ranking, and categorization of text documents in medical domain. The contributions of this study are the introduction of a similarity model to retrieve and rank medical textdocuments and the introduction of rule-based categorization method based on lexical syntactic patterns features. We formulate the similarity model by combining three features to model the relationship among document and construct a document network. We aim to rank ret...
A framework for reviewing domain specific conceptual models
TANRIÖVER, ÖMER ÖZGÜR; Bilgen, Semih (Elsevier BV, 2011-09-01)
Conceptual models are used in understanding and communicating the domain of interest during analysis phase of system development. As they are used in early phases, errors and omissions may propagate to later phases and may be very costly to correct. This paper proposes a framework for evaluating conceptual models when represented in a domain specific language based on UML constructs. The framework describes the main aspects to be considered when conceptual models are represented in a domain specific languag...
An Approach for introducing a set of domain specific components
Yiğit, İbrahim Onuralp; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2015)
In this thesis, a preliminary methodology is proposed for the determination of a set of components to populate the domain model of a Software Product Line infrastructure. Software Product Line based approaches focus on the reusability of assets for a family of software products. For effective reuse, the definition of reusable assets in this thesis considers variability in a domain. The approach is based on variability specifications that is rooted in Feature Models and is reflected to a component modeling n...
A metrics-based approach to the testing process and testability of object-oriented software systems
Yurga, Tolga; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Information Systems (2009)
This dissertation investigates the factors that affect testability and testing cost of object- oriented software systems. Developing a software program which eases the testing process by increasing testability is crucial. Also, to assess whether or not the testing effort and cost consumed or planned is adequate or not is another critical matter this dissertation aims to answer by composing a new way to evaluate the links between software design parameters and testing effort via source-based metrics. An auto...
A temporal neural network model for constructing connectionist expert system knowledge bases
Alpaslan, Ferda Nur (Elsevier BV, 1996-04-01)
This paper introduces a temporal feedforward neural network model that can be applied to a number of neural network application areas, including connectionist expert systems. The neural network model has a multi-layer structure, i.e. the number of layers is not limited. Also, the model has the flexibility of defining output nodes in any layer. This is especially important for connectionist expert system applications.
