Entity-relationship and Object-oriented Model Automatic Clustering

This paper describes an automatization of conceptual schema clustering through the definition of semantic distances between concepts, and the use of a clustering algorithm. For entity-relationship clustering, we define three different distances (visual, hierarchical and cohesive) depending on the semantic richness. Object model clustering is based on the structural, semantic and communication characteristics of objects.
