Abstract: ORM provides an excellent approach for information modeling, but to date has been limited mainly to descriptions of static information structures. This paper provides an outline of how ORM could be extended to add behavioral descriptions through the use of state machines. Most of the discussion is illustrated by an example of how a simple model could be extended in this way. Some suggestions are given for an outline process for adding state machine descriptions to ORM models and the developments required to integrate such descriptions into a comprehensive modeling environment.
