Title: Model Driven Engineering in Systems Integration
Author(s): Matthias Minich, Bettina Harriehausen-Mühlbauer, Christoph Wentzel
Reference: pp159-173
Keywords: Software Industrialization, Model Driven Engineering, Systems Integration
Abstract: Software development in systems integration projects is still reliant on craftsmanship of highly skilled workers. To make such projects more profitable, an industrialized production, characterized by high efficiency, quality, and automation seems inevitable. While first milestones of software industrialization have recently been achieved, it is questionable if these can be applied to the field of systems integration as well. Besides specialization, standardization and systematic reuse, automation represents the final and most sophisticated key concept of industrialization, represented by Model Driven Development (MDE). The present work discusses the most prominent MDE approaches, while considering the particularities of systems integration. It eventually identifies Generative Programming as being most suitable and integrates it into previous works on Software Product Lines and Component Based Development in Systems Integration.
