Pragmatics of Storyboarding

  • Klaus-Dieter Schewe
  • Bernhard Thalheim


The chapter is dedicated to the storyboarding method associated with the business layer in the abstraction layer model introduced in Chapter 1 emphasising pragmatics, i.e. what the WIS actually means to its users. After a brief discussion of the role of pragmatics first a method for detailed usage analysis with life cases, user models and actor portfolios is presented. This is then taking further to WIS portfolios centred around information needs and demands and leading to content chunks. Finally, an elaborate method for modelling contexts and metaphors used by them is discussed in detail.
