The question of how an architect should show these types of activities within IDEFO and other modeling methods generates considerable debate in the modeling community.
These categories are detailed described using the IDEFO language and the iGrafx software facilities (process and detail diagrams).
In order to establish criteria useful for evaluating models, those aspects of meaning that relate to the consistent and unambiguous naming of data and functions in IDEFo and DFD will be dealt with.
H1: Syntactical correctness and completeness of final models does not significantly differ between DFD and IDEFo groups.
H2: Syntactic consistency adn appropriateness of modelling process does not significantly differ between DFD and IDEFo groups.
H3: Semantic correctness and completeness of final models does not significantly differ between DFD and IDEFo groups.
H4: Semantic consistency adn appropriateness of modelling process does not significantly differ between DFD and IDEFo groups.
H5: Analyst's perception of ease of learning syntactic rules does not significantly differ between DFD and IDEFo groups.
H6: Analyst's perception of ease of drawing diagrams does not significantly differ between DFD and IDEFo groups.
H7: Analyst's perception of ease of understanding the diagrams drawn by his team member does not significantly differ between DFD and IDEFo groups.
H8: Analyst's overall confidence in the syntactic correctness and completeness of final models does not significantly differ between DFD adn IDEFo groups.
H9: Analyst's overall confidence in the semantic correctness and completeness of final models does not significantly differ between DFD and IDEFo groups.
