Snow profile interpretation is part of the every day work of any avalanche forecasting service. However, profile evaluation is considered rather an art than a technique. There are hardly any procedures known that could be used, and accordingly most forecasters have their own method. The avalanche forecasting service in Switzerland has to analyse twice a(More)
In this article we present a metamodeling tool that is strictly oriented towards the needs of the working domain expert. The working domain expert looks for intuitive metamodeling features. In particular, these features include rich capabilities for specifying the visual appearance of models. Our research has identified an important design rationale for(More)
An immense number of chemical reactions are carried out simultaneously in living cells. NatureÏs optimization approach encompasses the assembly of reactions in cascades and to embed them in finely tuned metabolic networks. With the vast progress in the field of biocatalysis, man-made cascades, especially redox cascades, have reached a degree of complexity(More)
In this article we present a metamodeling tool that is strictly oriented towards the needs of the working domain expert. The working domain expert longs for intuitive metamodeling features. In particular this concerns rich capabilities for specifying the visual appearance of models. In these efforts we have identified an important design rationale for(More)
Throughout the winter, avalanche forecasters issue bulletins to help the public and the managers of public facilities make avalanche safety decisions. These bulletins typically describe important snowpack features and current weather events before rating the avalanche danger on a scale of one through five. Although the character of avalanche conditions may(More)
Informationssysteme haben einen großen Einfluss auf die Geschäftsprozesse von Unternehmen. In den meisten Fällen werden durch die Einführung neuer Informationssysteme Geschäftsprozesse grundlegend geändert oder auch gänzlich neue geschaffen. So versprechen sich Unternehmen mehr Flexibilität und sinkende IT-Kosten nach einer serviceorientierten Ausrichtung(More)
