Hi,

It might be a very simple question, however, I have found that in the literature it has been emphasized that the modeling language should be intuitive and simple.
How to design such qualities ?

regards,
Arnaldo

Arnaldo,

Intuition and simplicity are subjective. You may as well ask how to
make something beautiful?

Hi Ed,

Although it can be subjective, however, are there any basic or standard criterias or terms based on which on can set and claim the modeling language to be intuitive.

rgds,
Arnaldo

Arnaldo,

No, I don't think there are standard criteria. It's often the case that
things start out seeming complex and unintuitive and then later these
same things seem simple and obvious. It's because they're manufactured
in the eye of the beholder...
