From scenarios to KCPM dynamic schemas: aspects of automatic mapping
Scenarios are a very popular means for describing and analyzing behavioral aspects on the level of natural language. In information systems design, they form the basis for a subsequent step of conceptual dynamic modeling. To enhance this step, linguistic instruments prove applicable for transforming scenarios into conceptual schemas of various models. This transformation usually consists of three steps: linguistic analysis, component mapping and schema construction. Within this paper we investigate to which extent these steps may be performed automatically in the framework of KCPM, a conceptual predesign model which is used as an Interlingua between natural language and arbitrary conceptual models.
