INTEGRATION DEFINITION FOR INFORMATION MODELING (IDEF1X)
|Publication Date:||21 December 1993|
IDEF1X is used to produce a graphical information model which represents the structure and semantics of information within an environment or system. Use of this standard permits the construction of semantic data models which may serve to support the management of data as a resource, the integration of information systems, and the building of computer databases.
In addition to the standard specification, this document provides two informative annexes. Annex A provides an example of a process of developing an IDEF1X model introduced in the original ICAM program. Annex B introduces a fomalization to the IDEF1X language written by R. G. Brown of the Database Design Group.
