Constraints between modeling perspectives
University of Skövde, Sweden
Enterprise models span all levels and perspectives of objects relevant to an enterprise, such as goal models, process models, data models, product models, network structures, interfaces, and so forth. Such models must be kept consistent with each other. The lecture proposes a constraint language that allows to formulate rules at an abstraction level that facilitates their automated re-use. We also discuss the mechanism that makes the elements of heterogeneous modeling languages related to each other and how we can use this view to plan the links between such modeling languages. The technique is applied to existing enterprise modeling approaches such as 4EM and Archimate to demonstrate the required effort. Practical examples and exercises use the ConceptBase metamodeling system.
