Sign Systems, Information Systems, and Engineering
This paper will address the question of how an engineering approach to enterprise modelling and system development might be combined with an approach to enterprises that does justice to its inherent
A Semiotics Approach to Analyzing the Information Bearing Capacity of a Data Schema
The main significance of this work is to ascertain that a sufficient data structure is in place for an information system to provide required information in the Entity-Relationship model (ER).
Improving Requirements Analysis - Rigourous Problem Analysis and Formulation with Coloured Cognitive Maps
Higher molecular weight hydrocarbons of from C2 to C7 carbon number are prepared by the method of passing the CO and H2 at a ratio of from 10-0.1 and the hydrocarbon products obtained are clean, stable paraffin liquids.
Some Considerations for a Semantic Analysis of Conceptual Data Schemata
The now widespread use of computers for data-processing in large and distributed organizations means that it is often the case that one organization will hold data in a variety of information
Critical Reflections on Information Systems: A Systemic Approach
The intelligent agent has been used to describe a Economic System Legal System Social System Technological System The Sub systems The E-Commerce System The Environment (WHOLE System) Intelligent Agents Consumers Businesses ACH Banks.
Interaction in Information Systems - Beyond Human Computer Interaction
A semiformal notation is introduced that is use to describe a set of interaction patterns and it is illustrated how the notation can be used to describe mediated interaction.
Case for an explicit co-ordination layer in modern business information systems architectures
An explicit co-ordination layer in a systems architecture provides a component which models the current state of organisational processes, and manages the interaction between other components, and encourages the co-evolution of the organisation and its information systems.
Are routine manual systems genuine information systems
It is found that, in using terminology from general systems theory and the semiotics literature, it is possible to find common ground between these systems and traditional IS, thus making the term ‘information system’ a legitimate label for such systems.
Information system metaphors
Three information system metaphors and the associated meaning complexes are explained: the mill, the cell, and the mind.


A role for soft systems methodology in information systems development
This paper seeks to identify and define, more fully than hitherto, a role for SSM in information systems development which stems from its fundamental principles.
Systems Thinking, Systems Practice
The case for “holon”
Long years ago as a physical chemist I used to use quantum theory and the mathematics of symmetry to analyze the high-resolution infrared spectra of small gaseous molecules, a process which enables
