  • Images within Posts - Common Meta Model

    Hi Ken, We&#39;re at the stage with our research (at Viev) where we feel that we can start asking questions and contributing to discussions on the common (ORM) meta-model. In order to do so, we&#39;d like to start putting images (ORM models) within those posts (as general points for discussion). Anyway, I&#39;m not sure about the general ...

  • '(In-Model) Fact Tables' and Hot-Keys - Richmond

    Hi all, We wanted ORM models in Richmond to have &#39;(in-model) Fact Tables&#39;, so that ORM models in Richmond look as close as possible to what you find in the literature (i.e. with &#39;Fact Tables&#39; next to their respective &#39;Fact Types&#39;). Here is a quick video demonstrating &#39;(in-model) Fact Tables&#39; and our ongoing ...

  • Auto-Arrangement, Zooming and Panning - Richmond

    Hi all, One of the most likeable features of nORMa (for me) is that it adopts ORM2 and can&nbsp;cram a lot of information in a very small space. Of course, this is by design of ORM2 and nORMa. We want our customers to have the best, so we have implemented &#39;Zooming&#39;, &#39;Panning&#39; and&nbsp;new features...&#39;Auto-Layout&#39; and ...

  • Re: Rapid Fact Type Establishment - Richmond

    Hi John, Thanks for the feedback. I wasn&#39;t sure at first whether hot keys for EntityTypes/ValueTypes would be a good thing, because we wanted them created within the database first&nbsp;and then&nbsp;just &#39;dropped&#39; onto the form. I have certainly been playing around with it, and it is really quite intuitive and much faster model ...

  • Re: Popuation Editor Data Entry Too Subtle

    Hi Matt, Thank you for getting back to John and I&nbsp;on this one. Of course I support John&#39;s thread to tickle for&nbsp;debate, but I am a user of nORMa as much as&nbsp;authoring (what I hope to be) some friendly rivalry with Richmond. I have read the licence agreement for nORMa, and I think it&#39;s a good thing that in order to ...

  • Re: ORM for a WFF?

    Hi John, Imagine a paradigm shift, and&nbsp;the poor guys who couldn&#39;t read Egyption Hieroglyphics before the Rossetta Stone. Then imagine Terry Halpin&#39;s doctoral thesis. i.e. Dr Halpin&nbsp;tells us exactly how to use the &#39;Existential Quantification&#39; and &#39;Universal Quantification&#39;&nbsp;in a first order logical ...

  • Rapid Fact Type Establishment - Richmond

    Hi all, We&#39;re working on a thesis within Richmond that is synonymous with the &#39;Cost Per Click&#39; paradigm found in &#39;Call Centres&#39;. The readily accepted principal is that &quot;each click of the mouse or keystroke costs money/time&quot;; both of which are metrics which are constantly monitored in Call Centres, where time is ...

  • Re: ORM for a WFF?

    Hi John, I just read you post. I agree with Ken, &quot;A First course in Logic&quot; is a&nbsp;good book. You have probably found it already, but you can read bits of the book on Amazon.&nbsp;I agree with Ken, it has the right style for easy reading/comprehension. My company is building a Rule Engine/Inference&nbsp;Engine&nbsp;as well, and in my ...

  • Re: Validation of a physical model against a conceptual model

    Hi John, I believe I see what you are saying. I believe that&#39;s a great idea and a natural extension of an ORM tool. I mention Richmond not to solicit, but so that I can&#39;t be accused of solicitation (i.e. I&#39;m being open about it too). To be honest, I&#39;m very sold on what has turned out to be something incredible about the ORM ...

  • Re: SOL as isomorphic interpretation of theories in a FOL

    Hi there, I received confirmation of this off-line, so for those interested: &quot;FOL is undecidable, and since ORM covers FOL, ORM is undecidable too. In practice this turns out to be not a major problem.&quot; I have no confirmation for how well this is known as &#39;common knowledge&#39;, but experience tells us that nothing is less ...
