ZAPATA, Carlos Mario; ESTRADA, Betsy María  and  GONZALEZ, Guillermo. Reglas de conversión entre el diagrama de clases y los grafos conceptuales de Sowa. Rev. ing. univ. Medellin [online]. 2006, vol.5, n.9, pp.111-122. ISSN 1692-3324.

The conversion from lower-level abstraction models to upper-level abstraction models encourages communication between the parts of the software development process. Conceptual graphs are diagrams for presentation of the modeled information in a semi-formal way, and they can be understandable both for human and computer. Class diagram, in contrast, presents the systems classes, attributes, operations and main relations in an expert language for software product modelers. In this paper, we propose a set of conversion rules for translating class diagram (a more detailed, low-level abstraction model) into a one more understandable form for stakeholders (an upper-level abstraction model) based on Sowa's Conceptual Graphs

Keywords : reglas de conversión; grafos conceptuales de Sowa; diagrama de clases.
