A modeling language is any artificial language that can be used to express information or knowledge or systems in a structure that is defined by a consistent set of rules. The rules are used for interpretation of the meaning of components in the structure; modeling languages can be either graphical or textual. The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a general-purpose, developmental, modeling language in the field of software engineering, that is intended to provide a standard way to visualize the design of a system.

For my modelling class I have some homework involving creating a UML class diagram which I'm quite troubled with. I'm having difficulty identifying what is the class, the attributes, and the functions.

Here's the information that was provided to me:

The document header in a sales order includes data that are valid for the entire sales order. Examples are customer data such as partner functions and customer PO number, dates, and order total. Each sales document can include one or more sales document items, which contain data about each item included in the sales order. Examples of item data are material number, description, and quantity. Each item can be associated with a different item category, such as standard item, text item, and free-of-charge item, which determines how the item is handled with regard to pricing, billing, and shipping. For example, there is no charge for free-of-charge items. Finally, each document item can include one or more schedule lines, which specify delivery quantities and dates. The sales order corresponds to an invoice document.

Any help appreciated, Cheers!

Hi All,

I need your assistance starting a table/relationships similar to an Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) for storing business objects. Please note this is not for SAP Business Objects.

The definition of a business object is “an entity that describes a person, place or thing that is essential to a business system, which the subject system needs to be keep track of”.

I am not really sure which tables / relationships are needed for business objects. I would appreciate your guidance or examples.

Thank you.

Hi,
Could I please I have your thoughts on what a business object is from a data architecture point of view?

I have googled the business object term but most of the results are based on SAP business object reporting. And the business object definition from web sites are not very clear.

For example if I am trying to identify business objects related to information / data from a business process. What are these business objects?

Many Thanks.

How do I delay the start of my explosion with fluid effects for Maya 2015 when I am animating? For example: explosion starts at frame 225 instead of the 1st frame.

Hi experts

i have been asked to provide a few examples of case use diagrams or statements for a number of IT support scenarios including;

Internal IT Services Delivered
Incidents and Change
Platforms managed
CMDB

im pretty new to this type of thing and have very little ITIL experience.

Are there any examples of the above i could use as a template or an online generation program to help with this?

Regards

Neil

We are exporting from Tekla to IFC format.
Some of the resulting  plate dimmensions are incorrect.
The problem seems to be the flat plate definition in the IFC file.
For example a 10 x 75 mm flat plate is defined as
#867= IFCRECTANGLEPROFILEDEF(.AREA.,'FL10*75',#169,10.,110.);
The plate ends up being 10mm x 110mm rather than 10mm x 75mm.
We can't figure out where the incorrect flat plate dimmension is coming from.

Below is an extract taking from a paper available at: http://www.geog.ucsb.edu/~good/papers/414.pdf

I need to understand it please very well. It is all clear until he starts the second paragraph.
The second paragraph mentioned an indicator I am not sure I understand the whole second paragraph.  Please help to clarify I am starting to study these models and their integration with GIS. Thanks

A model is a computer program that takes a digital representation of one or more aspects of the real world and transforms them to create a new representation. Models can be static, if the input and the output both correspond to the same point in time, or dynamic, if the output represents a later point in time than the input.

The common element in all of these models is the operation of the GIS in multiple stages, whether they be used to create complex indicators from input layers or to represent time steps in the operation of a dynamic process. Static models often take the form of indicators, combining various inputs to create a useful output. For example, the Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) combines layers of mapped information about slope, soil quality, agricultural practices, and other properties to estimate the amount of soil that will be lost to erosion from a unit area in a unit time (Wischmeier and Smith 1978). The DRASTIC model (fig. 1) estimates geographic variation in the vulnerability of groundwater to pollution, again based on a number of mapped properties
