Tool-Supported Systematic Model Assessment
In this paper we present a framework supporting domain-specific model assessment in a heterogeneous modelling environment. The generic method we developed is based on a common meta model for all user models created within different tools and notations. The method supports information retrieval for the set of models by means of queries and views, which can be interpreted as model cross sections corresponding to given aspects. We present a technical description of our framework: an architecture, a prototypic realisation and the technologies used in our implementation. A central point of the modular architecture is a common repository of model elements. The queries and views provide aggregated information on model elements to support the modeller during modelling and analysis processes.
