Measuring Data Model Stability

This thesis is based on research into the fundamentals of data modelling theory and practice, especially related to the changes in models over time. It covers the emergence of data modelling methodologies, the design of a tool to measure and a technique to explore the behaviour of models over time. This work is a study of the contribution of information technologies to business epistemology and hermeneutics. The focus is on whether it is feasible to track the changes in data models and data base management representations and why these representations change. [F6857]
