Conceptual models serve as an important means to help IS professionals grasp a holistic picture of an information system. However, in most cases, the use of only one model is not sufficient to provide this information. For that reason, pieces of information are represented using multiple models and grammars, which partially overlap. The literature is still silent on how this overlap can be effectively presented to the users. Our research aims to close this gap. We plan to conduct an eye-tracking experiment to investigate our hypotheses. The results will contribute to the theory of combined ontological completeness and overlap and provide practical advice on how the connection between multiple models should be presented.
