Modeling business relationships 

Finalized

Enterprise modeling requires, of course, to pay attention to different kinds of business relationships. In many cases, we really need to talk of such relationships, for instance where the contractual conditions that regulate them evolve in time, or when such conditions are violated. In terms of conceptual modeling, this means that relationships need to be reified, that is, they need to be put in the domain of discourse. In this talk, I will first introduce the ontological basis of relationships reification, according to which relationships are seen as truthmakers of relations. I will then discuss two actual case studies, concerning respectively the core relations used to model economic transactions in the REA ontology, and the relations within a complex service system.

What Rhymes With Critical Design? 

Finalized

Critical practices and design practices are both (at least) centuries-old. Further, as any design history makes clear, designing and criticality have often worked side-by-side. Dunne and Raby recently developed a distinctive practice that they called Critical Design, which has clearly resonated with many throughout the design world. Many researchers, myself included, have remarked that Dunne & Raby's Critical Design narrows both criticality and design in order to achieve a coherent practice. The risk--and I believe it is happening--is that the design community treats their specific practice as paradigmatic of the whole idea of designing with criticality, narrowing and even foreclosing the extraordinary potentials of criticality in design. In this presentation, I explore points where design epistemologies and critical epistemologies appear to "rhyme," that is, where design practices and critical practices appear to be in alignment, though often with different vocabularies. Specifically, I offer a side-by-side analysis of design cognition and critical interpretation to reveal deep and surprising similarities. From this, I argue that we should not treat the intersection of criticality and design as if it were a specialized design subdomain, but instead that we should view criticality as a part of design and design as part of criticality. A role for design research, on such a view, is to develop theories and methods that open up ways of integrating criticality and design.
