Bee-Up for Education

Teaching Conceptual Modelling with the Bee-Up Tool

Bee-Up is an implementation of a hybrid modelling method incorporating and extending several modelling languages that gained wide popularity, namely

  • the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN)
  • Event-driven Process Chains (EPC),
  • Entity-Relationship models (ER),
  • the Unified Modelling Language (UML) and
  • Petri Nets.

Additional auxiliary languages, like Flowcharts, are also available. Bee-Up does not enforce a specific procedure when solving a problem. Instead it provides a set of different types of models and tools that can be employed according to the requirements of the task at hand.

Bee-Up is free and available for use in teaching conceptual modelling. Easy and intuitive in use it enables students to

  • Design models
  • Perform model processing (simulation, analysis, exports)
