domain model

(systems analysis)
1. A definition of the functions, objects, data, requirements, relationships and variations in a particular domain.

2. A product of domain analysis which provides a representation of the requirements of the domain. The domain model identifies and describes the structure of data, flow of information, functions, constraints and controls within the Domain that are included in software systems in the domain. The Domain Model describes commonalities and variabilities among requirements for software systems in the domain.

We capture all the processes related to the previously mentioned authoring activities in corresponding authoring modules, such as the Domain Model Authoring, Learning Objects (resources) Management, Instructional Strategies, Assessment Strategies Authoring, Simulated User Model, Course (Learning) Sequencing, and Learning Goal Authoring modules (see Figure 4 later).
On the other hand, full automation of decision making processes in such settings is not feasible, since the creation of the required domain models as well as the inference are intractable problems.
It is centered around Tamot, a task and domain model editor that uses an underlying XML-based language to represent: (1) task models written in the Diane+ modeling language (Tarby & Barthet, 1996) and (2) their accompanying domain models (3) written in a simple KL-ONE styled knowledge base (Brachman & Schmolze, 1985).
This methodology allows combining the rapidly developed application domain model with the detailed information that can be derived from the legacy system.
The domain model is a collection of state descriptions of the form: If <relevance condition> is true, then <satisfaction condition> had better also be true, otherwise something has gone wrong.
As a remedy, this paper discusses a method to search the domain model using XPath--a W3C standard that uses logical predicates to search an XML document.
A sampling of topics includes: semiautomatic domain model building from text data, dynamic personalization of media content, combining linguistic values and semantics to represent user preferences, social networking and online communities: classification and research, supporting user roles in ontology fuzzification, and placing user generated photo metadata on a map.
