Summary

In an effort to put a nice bow around all this, I’ll leave you with a few key points. As the final layer of the Structure tier, the organizational model is the most concrete expression of how your application and/or content fits together. Although users are rarely conscious of the conceptual model or the structural model, the organizational model is certainly something they can identify and talk about. Therefore, it’s also something that should be tested repeatedly with users.

When you design an organizational model, considering the classification scheme and the model of association separately is useful. Separating the categories’ definition from the relationships between them enables you to see more clearly the full range of options as well as their attendant pros and cons.
