From the Book Description:
Konitzer, et al. wrote:This book presents the concepts and terminology of cognitive patterns and cognitive modeling. It thoroughly explains the uniqueness of cognitive patterns as an approach in modeling business systems and processes. The authors introduce KADS Object (a nonproprietary set of cognitive patterns) as a special framework for enabling object-oriented (OO) analysis and design. The use of KADS Object in concert with any OO methodology leads to the creation of robust, understandable, and testable OO models and systems. The book is organized into three major sections. The first section introduces the concepts of cognitive modeling and KADS. The second section examines the specific mappings from the KADS Object model components to OO design elements. The final section discusses cognitive patterns for typical OO development life-cycle activities. This book will appeal to the OO practitioners who are interested in the modeling and development of large-scale and complex OO systems, those interested in modeling business processes as collaborating objects, and Information Technology (IT) professionals interested in knowledge management.

Bobbin Teegarden has been a business engineering consultant and IT (information technology) professional longer than she cares to admit. Her current specialization is in enterprise knowledge modeling of complex systems and business application architecture and design using object-oriented and Expert Systems techniques. Her professional background experience has spanned systems engineering to management consulting. She is currently working on applying complexity and chaos theories to business modeling and application architecture.
