Study Goal

Students learn theoretical and practice-oriented knowledge of the most important notations and procedures for the modeling of business information systems (information modeling). Students learn to create data-, process-, organization-, and object-oriented models (e.g., ERM, EPK, UML). They acquire the skills to analyze structural aspects of business management issues and to translate them into information models using modeling notations, as is e.g. necessary in the requirements engineering for the development of new information systems or in the introduction of standard software systems. With the help of reference frameworks for information architectures (ARIS), students learn how information models can sensibly be used in IT-projects and how procedural models can be designed. The consideration of different levels of abstraction gives an insight into structures, strengths and limits of notations and procedural models (meta-modeling). The students are enabled to develop business management know-how and to apply them in the design of business information systems (reference modeling).
