Enacting a Requirement Engineering Process with Meta-Tools: an Exploratory Project

Abstract : An engineering process can hardly be described rigorously because of its dynamic and decision-oriented nature. Applying goal-oriented modeling for representing such processes is a promising approach. However, goal-oriented process models have no clear operational semantics, and building an enactment engine for such models is a highly complex task. To avoid building such tools in an ad-hoc manner and to overcome maintainability and portability issues, we investigate in this paper the practical feasibility of meta-CASE and CAME based approaches for constructing an enactment tool for a goal-oriented model. We describe and analyze a project in which MetaEdit+, a leading meta-tool, is tested. Our aim is to evaluate the meta-tool approach and to explore its possibilities in terms of process model enactment. During this project, a requirement elicitation process is used as a preliminary test bed.
