Concept Map Based Software Engineering

This thesis proposes that a concept map be used to support a shared understanding of a software system. The concept map will be used to provide a common context to be used throughout the software development lifecycle. This common context would remove the problem of requiring technical views of the system be translated to generic, ambiguous diagrams for the purposes for stakeholder communications. In addition, since this shared conceptual model of the system will act as a context for many other conceptual models then it can also act as a bridge to map between views of a system thereby enabling different views of the system to be cross referenced to each other using a common context. The approach is examined using a pilot study, the development of a concept map tutorial and the creation of a partial mapping between Unified Modeling Language notation and concept map linking words.
