  • Tutorial:
    • The handling of this case study (written paper, 5-7 pages) is mandatory (individual work). It is required to pass the exam and is also 15% of the final grade.
    • In addition, exercises and appropriate example solutions are available. Their handling is voluntary and is not part of the final grade.
  • E-Learning:
    • Recordings of the lecture
    • Slides
    • Exercises and example solutions
    • Case studies


  • Information modeling
  • Information models, ARIS
  • Data Modeling
  • Process Modeling
  • UML (Unified Modeling Language)
  • Metamodeling


  • Students learn theoretical and practical knowledge of the main notations and modeling approaches for information systems (information modeling).
  • Students learn to create data, process, organization and object-oriented models (eg. ERM, EPC, UML). They acquire the skills to analyze structural aspects of business management issues and to create information models with the help of modeling notations.
  • Students learn how information models are used effectively in computer science projects and how process models can be designed. Looking at different levels of abstraction provides an insight into the structures, strengths and limitations of notations and process models (meta-modeling).
  • Students will be able to use business know-how in the design of operational information systems (reference model).
