Abstract. In this position paper, we argue in favour of three points related to document-centric modelling of information systems: (i) information systems of some organizations may be understood in terms of documents, actions, actors, and document flow; (ii) modelling document flow may be a central step in modelling an information system; and (iii) as an approach to information system modelling, document flow modelling may be coupled with the form-based approach to information system development that is featured in IIS*Case, a model-driven development tool, because the form concept is semantically close to the document concept. With respect to these claims, we formulate a document-centric and model-driven approach to information system development, explain its particularities, and present a plan of activities that should lead to its implementation. By relying on domain-specific languages, the proposed approach should allow generation of information systems supporting document manipulation within a document flow and process mining.
