In this chapter we report the results of three empirical studies we undertook to examine user understanding of conceptual models. We used ontological theory to predict how part-whole relations and things and properties are best represented to enable user understanding of these phenomena. We also discuss the research and practical implications of our findings as well as future work that might be undertaken. Theoretical Background Little theory exists that can be used to predict or explain why any particular conceptual modelling notation or representation is better understood by end Copyright © 2005, Idea Group Inc.

We contend that the choice of representation in conceptual modelling is important in terms of users’ ability to elicit the meaning of the phenomena described via the representation. Hence, the following propositions motivate the two experiments we undertook: • Proposition 1: Conceptual models that use entity class constructs to represent composites will enable users to better understand the semantics associated with the composite than conceptual models that use a relationship class construct. • Proposition 2: Conceptual models that use an attribute construct to represent properties will enable users to better understand the semantics associated with the model than conceptual models that use an entity class construct.

Such findings could motivate the derivation of relevant sub-types of transformation when it comes to the context of business process management. • Third, the derivation of a focused ontology will require adapting the terminology of the analysed domain for two reasons. , conceivable state space within the BWW ontology). On the other side, the analysed domain might have its own established terminology. An example is the area of workflow modelling techniques, in which the Workflow Management Coalition had a significant impact with its glossary.
