ADOxx Modelling Method Conceptualization Environment

By Nesat Efendioglu, Robert Woitsch and Damiano Falcioni Wilfrid Utz


The importance of Modelling Methods Engineering is equally rising with the importance of domain specific languages (DSL) and individual modelling approaches. In order to capture the relevant semantic primitives for a particular domain, it is necessary to involve both, (a) domain experts, who identify relevant concepts as well as (b) method engineers who compose a valid and applicable modelling approach. This process consists of a conceptual design of formal or semi-formal of modelling method as well as a reliable, migratable, maintainable and user friendly software development of the resulting modelling tool. Modelling Method Engineering cycle is often under-estimated as both the conceptual architecture requires formal verification and the tool implementation requires practical usability, hence we propose a guideline and corresponding tools to support actors with different background along this complex engineering process. Based on practical experience in business, more than twenty research projects within the EU frame programmes and a number of bilateral research initiatives, this paper introduces the phases, corresponding a toolbox and lessons learned with the aim to support the engineering of a modelling method. ”The proposed approach is illustrated and validated within use cases from three different EU-funded research projects in the fields of (1) Industry 4.0, (2) e-learning and (3) cloud computing. The paper discusses the approach, the evaluation results and derived outlooks
