Research Institution
This project proposes to study the core concepts of Active Conceptual modeling (A-CM) with applications to military and commercial systems. We plan to explore the feasibility of extending the mathematical framework for Entity-Relationship (ER)-based active conceptual modeling developed by Dr. Peter Chen to represent scenario snapshots that include time, space, uncertainty, and perspective dimensions. the mathematical framework will be based on set theory, Modern algebra, and other branches of mathematics. We also plan to explore mechanisms for the computation and representation of differences between snapshots for model evolution. In Phase I, we will evaluate the feasibility of developing information services derived from active conceptual modeling. We plan to identify a set of information services that will be benefited by the A-CM technology. We also plan to design and implement a simple version of one or more such information service tools to test the feasibility and validity of the mathematical framework and the representation and computation of the conceptual model difference mechanism.
