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

    Ken and Victor, thank you both for your thoughts. There is certainly a potential here for the scope of the discussion to quickly explode into numerous topics that are each comprehensive, so I will make an attempt at responding to both with a few more steps to explain some of my thoughts on where &quot;SchemaCop&quot; may arrive as a first build. ...
