Model-Driven Engineering at work: Multi-Paradigm Modelling
{ Wed, 13 Jan 2010, 14h00 }

By: Hans Vangheluwe  [ show info ]

Models are invariably used in Engineering (for design) and Science (for analysis) to precisely describe structure as well as behaviour of systems. Models may have components described in different formalisms, and may span different levels of abstraction. In addition, models are frequently transformed into domains/formalisms where certain questions can be easily answered. We introduce the term “multi-paradigm modelling” to denote the interplay between multi-abstraction modelling, multi-formalism modelling and the explicit modelling of model transformations. The presentation will start with some ancedotal evidence of the need for multi-paradigm modelling. Subsequently, the foundations of multi-paradigm modelling will be presented. It will be shown how all aspects of multi-paradigm modelling can be explicitly (meta-)modeled enabling the efficient synthesis of (possibly domain-specific) multi-paradigm (visual) modelling environments. We have implemented our ideas in the tool AToM^3 (A Tool for Multi-formalism and Meta Modelling). AToM^3 will be introduced by means of a simple example. Finally, an overview will be given of current and future challenges of multi-paradigm modelling.
