Conext (concept explorator) a framework for system comprehension with holistic approach in reverse engineering

Tenoyo, B., Mursanto, P and Santoso, H.B

The purpose of this paper is to introduce a framework of Reverse Engineering to help system comprehension using holistic approach. Our framework consists of several components: conceptual model – to provide model of studied system so it can help user to explore artifacts and understand the relationship between existing concepts, user model – to provide and to record concepts that has been explored and will be explored, methods – how we provide or create concept structures for conceptual model and user model, and the last part is tool – it will help user to understand the studied system. Using this framework we may help user to prevent lost of focus when he explore the concepts he want to know. This framework also provide infrastructure how to quantify a comprehension of a system.
