COMPARISON BETWEEN THE BUSINESS MODELLING METHODS PROVIDED BY MEASUR AND RUP

Hui Du, Tingting Li, Dan Ding

Abstract

Business modelling is a primary task in information systems development lifecycle. Although both MEASUR (Methods for Eliciting, Analyzing and Specifying User’s Requirement) and RUP (Rational Unified Process) provide their own Business Modelling Method (BMM), each has obvious merits and drawbacks. In order to devise a combined BMM, which can keep the merits and avoid the drawbacks at the same time, in this paper, comparison between the two BMMs respectively from semantics, pragmatics and social world of the semiotic framework is specified. The method to extend UML activity diagrams with the deontic operators “permitted”, “prohibited” and “obliged” is proposed.
