Концептуальное моделирование: How Many? How Much?

3 years, 1 month ago
Вопрос о том, что такое класс объектов, существует ли он в природе, обсуждается мной вот уже на протяжении двух статей: Класс объектов или объекты класса? , Особенности концептуального моделирования предметной области . Я задаюсь вопросом: можно ли, описывая предметную область, связать семантической связью объект и класс объектов?

Вопрос на самом деле отнюдь не праздный. Я часто встречаю модели, которые не совсем точно передают смысл сказанного. Например, хозяин машины может сказать, что его машина содержит группу колес. Он мог бы сказать, что машина содержит колеса, и это было бы совсем другое утверждение. Меня же смущает то, что в моделях, которые я видел, не делается разница между этими двумя утверждениями. Однако, на практике между ними огромная разница. Попробуйте потренироваться в поиске этой разницы самостоятельно.

Моделирование при помощи UML подливает масла в огонь, потому что во-первых, не позволяет моделировать классы объектов (Моделирование функциональных и физических событий в логической парадигме), а во-вторых, не позволяет связать семантикой класс объектов и объект. Таким образом, в области моделирования предметных областей наблюдается пока не изученное пустое пространство. Я позволю себе немного порезвиться на этом поле, чтобы показать, как на самом деле это забавно. Сегодня я расскажу про то, как мой вопрос связан с понятием исчисляемости и неисчисляемости существительного.
