  • SAM – Software Architecture Modelling
    The SAM research project aims to develop and research a modeling method based on a graphical modeling language that supports software architects in the analysis, design and communication of software architectures.
  • ELMO – E-Learning for Conceptual Modeling
    This research project aims at the construction of an e-learning software to support students in their learning process when learning conceptual (data) modeling. More information on the project will be provided soon.
  • SPORT – Research on a web application for sports clubs
    The research project SPORT designs, develops, tests and evaluates a web application for managing, organising and running amateur sports clubs. Research on sportyweb - the web app - investigates full stack web development including software architecture, conceptual modeling, user experience and user interface design, database optimisation, server-side MVC, web socket technology and more.
  • TOOL – A web browser-based modeling tool and observatory
    TOOL is a web browser-based modeling tool and research observatory we have been researching, designing and developing since 2013. TOOL is part of a long-term research program aimed at better understanding the learning of conceptual modeling by observing individual modeling processes. TOOL implements a multi-modal observation and data generation approach complementing different modes of observation, and is used in a series of research studies.
  • IMP – Understanding modeling difficulties and designing tailored support for modelers
    The research project aims to contribute to a richer and more complete understanding of individual modeling processes by identifying modeling difficulties and by developing a taxonomic theory of such difficulties – as theoretical foundation for designing tailored (software tool) support for modelers at different stages of their mastering of conceptual modeling.
  • FKM – Fachdidaktik des konzeptuellen Modellierens
    Konzeptuelles Modellieren ist eine zentrale Fachkompetenz für den schulischen Informatik- und Wirtschaftsinformatik-Unterricht. Das Forschungsprojekt FACH zielt darauf ab, eine systematisch erarbeitete Grundlage für das schulische Lernen und die Aufbereitung von Lehrmaterialien mit Bezug zum konzeptuellen Modellieren zu schaffen, um damit insbes. Lehrende im Kontext von schulischer Bildung (insbes. im Bereich der Sekundarstufe II) gezielt zu unterstützen.
  • BPS – adoption, usage and user requirements
    Business process simulation (BPS) marks an essential Business Process Management (BPM) technique for analyzing business processes and for reasoning about process improvement. As an analytic tool in the BPM practitioners’ toolkit, BPS enables organizations to scrutinize alternative process designs prior to their organizational implementation to reason about design alternatives and prevent costly design and implementation flaws as well as to identify opportunities for process improvement subsequent to process implementation—without having to actually execute the business process (e.g., Dumas et al. 2018, Neumann et al. 2011).
