Glossary

Begriff Abkürzung Bedeutung
Application, Anwendung
Usually denotes a smaller kind of Software which serves a limited purpose, in contrast to socalled Systems.
applicationloom
This is the name by which EM/OS is known in the realm of fairyloom.
Automated Software Production, Automatisierte Software-Produktion
Software has always been used to produce other Software: whether Assembler, Compiler, or IDE, the purpose of such tools is always to simplify the creation and make it more efficient, and to produce less erraneous and more secure systems.
The various procedures, which have been developed over the years, differ mainly in which kind of description they operate on to create the desired results. Still very widely used is program code, like Java or JavaScript. It contains many technical details, is translated by compilers into the target systems, and is only maintainable by IT-Experts.
For more than two decades there is ongoing research and development on how to produce Software from socalled Models. These describe the desired results from the perspective of business users much more directly than would be possible with the technical oriented languages. Thereby they are easier to comprehend and much easier to maintain.
EM/OS is such a tool. It enables domain experts to describe their requirements clearly and precisely, and to automatically produce the respective software from.
businessboard
The businessboard is an online workplace for editing lorescrolls, controlling automated softproduction, and collaborate and communicate with a team.
businessboards are available on the fairyloom service website.
Geschäfts-Modell, Business Model
A Business Model here denotes an integrated Model, which contains all requirements as well as all organisational and business relevant facts to describe a Software, in a clear and precise way. Often, but not always, this is achieved by using graphics.
Usually such integrated Business Models consist of partial models, which describe a certain aspect, respectively. Typical partial models are Class-, Architecture, System- and Process-Models, yet this can dependingly be defined much narrower or broader (Strategy, Projects, Story Boards, technical details etc.).
EM/OS processes such comprehensive Business Models, which can be collaboratively edited in the businessboard. In the realm of fairyloom these models are known as lorescrolls.
Enterprise Model Operation Services
EM/OS
The Enterprise Model Operation Services (EM/OS) by Sphenon GmbH are a system pro produce and operate ready-for-production business solutions directly from Business Models.
lorescript
This is the name by which OOEM Models are known in the realm of fairyloom.
lorescroll
This is the name by which Business Models are known in the realm of fairyloom.
Modelle
Generally a model is understood as a simplified image of a given object, which in our context obviously is some IT- or Business System. Specifically, such models are formally constructed documents, whose individual elements have a precisely defined meaning.
Very often models are represented graphically as diagrams. The various elements are characterised by different symbols, colours or shapes. Some kinds of models are:
  • Class-Models
  • Architecture-Models
  • System-Models
  • Process-Models
The purpose of such models is often to describe the systems clearly comprehensible in domain oriented way, and to avoid technical details as far as possible. Comprehensive models are used as specifications to automatically produce software solutions.
OOEM-Format
The specific kind of Business Model that is used by EM/OS.
Solution, Lösung
Used synonymously for Software, which serves a given purpose, but also used in a broader sense for a bundle of organisational and technical measurements to achieve a certain purpose.
System
Used synonymously for a more complex kind of Software which serves a broader purpose, in contrast socalled Applications.
