Paper on two case studies of multi-level modeling accepted

Posted on Posted in News

The paper “Multi-Level Design of Process-Oriented Enterprise Information Systems Essential Guidelines and two Case Studies based on the FMMLx and the XModelerML” by Tony Clark and Ulrich Frank was accepted for publication in the journal Enterprise Modeling and Information System Architectures (EMISA).

The paper presents prototypical multi-level models of two uses cases.The models serve to demonstrate the specific power of multi-level modeling. First, they integrate models on higher levels, which correspond to domain-specific modeling languages, with those on lower levels. In addition, models are supplemented with objects on L0 to demonstrate how these can be integrated. The models are executable without the need to generate code, since models and corresponding program code share the same representation, thus demonstrating the possibility of advanced application system architectures, which allow users to navigate a comprehensive representation of the system they work with at runtime. The design of the models was inspired by the EMISA process challenge. Therefore, they are evaluated against the requirements defined with the challenge.
