Interviews were undertaken with 26 highly experienced conceptual modelers to determine how they undertook conceptual modeling in practice. Major types of cognitive states and events experienced by the conceptual modelers, as manifested in typed transcripts of the interviews, were then identified and coded. Based on the codes and the interview transcripts, a descriptive, process-oriented theory of how the modelers undertook conceptual modeling was induced. © 2010 IEEE.
