About This Chapter
Domain Modeling - Chapter Summary
If you're looking for an overview of domain modeling in systems analysis and design, you're in the right place. These short lessons define domain modeling and show you how it differs from other model types. You'll also learn how to make a domain model diagram. The chapter comes with short self-assessment quizzes to help you retain the information you study. Complete the chapter at your own pace, and reach out to our instructors if you have any domain modeling questions. When you're finished working through the chapter, you should be equipped to:
- Analyze examples of domain modeling
- Create domain model diagrams
- Compare domain models to data, object and design models
- Differentiate between class diagrams and domain models
1. Domain Modeling: Definition & Examples
Good systems cannot be built without an understanding of how the real world works. This lesson will define the concept of domain modeling and provide examples of its use in mapping real-world concepts.
2. Domain Model vs. Data Model
What are domain models and data models and why do we use them? What is the difference between each of the these models? Let's look at each and see them drawn out to explore these valuable tools.
