FOM as a method is described completely in the book Fully Communication Oriented Information Modeling, and further elucidated in the accompanying book with exercises and cases. The method is supported in conformity with the theory by CaseTalk, the FOM Casetool of BCP Software. FOM is cornerstone of the Information Management Frame. This Frame is described in the book About Facts and Things.
The course Hands-On FOM gives you a whole new view on conceptual modeling of difficult, unusual information constructs. Also in this kind of situations, the logical data structures must be derived straightforwardly from the conceptual information model, and they are only then a solid basis for the various applications for the knowledge workers in an organization, if these knowledge workers have been truly able to validate the conceptual information model. You gain insight in all ins and outs of Fact Oriented Modeling.
Ų FOM in theory, in practice, and the truth about Semantic Equivalence
Ų Division into Groups (with populations or customers) and Unbalanced trees (e.g. in organizational hierarchies)
Ų Generalisation of measured values (differences at the conceptual and logical level)
Ų The finer points of subtyping en generalisation (Hindrances in planned transports, Chess notation, etc.)
Ų Recursion (Files and folders)
Ų Modeling of charts and diagrams (e.g. ECG)
Ų Column names in transformations (Married with children, father/mother, grandpa/grandma)
Ų What makes modeling tough (Pitfalls for modelers, biases)
Ų How do we get our domain experts involved? How to deal with resistance?
Ų How do we persuade management?
Ų FOM, FCO-IM, NIAM, ORM, Factil and tooling
Ų What is the real driver for maximum normal form models
Ų And practicing a lot in all these matters
Ų Business Experts and Information Analysts that have worked a lot with FOM for at least half a year
Ų All Knowledge workers in an organization, who would like to be able again to exert genuine influence on the development of the applications that they need to do their work
