  • Today, developing the conceptual design of information systems has become inconceivable without the support of graphical models. Models are developed using graph-based modeling languages such as UML. This study focuses on the impact of metamodel properties on different usability attributes in the domain of graphical modeling languages. The study is based on a model of hypotheses including a structural causal model developed under consideration of cognitive theories and usability theory. Survey… CONTINUE READING
