SPEM on test: the SODA case study


Elena Nardini  /  Ambra Molesini, Andrea Omicini, Elena Nardini, Enrico Denti

<div>In the Software Engineering (SE) research field, several efforts are underway aimed at developing appropriate meta-models for SE methodologies. Meta-models are meant to check and verify both the software development process and the completeness and expressiveness of methodologies.</div>

<div>In this context, in order to provide a uniform way to represent, compare and reuse methodologies, Software Process Engineering Meta-model (SPEM) &#151; an OMG object-oriented standard &#151; is a natural candidate. In order to put the SPEM meta-modelling power to test, and emphasise its benefits and limitations, in this paper we apply SPEM to a more articulated context than the object-oriented one where it was initially conceived &#151; that is, Agent- Oriented Software Engineering (AOSE) methodologies. In particular, we take the SODA methodology as a significant case study in order to assess strengths and limitations of SPEM, given the peculiar SODA focus on the modelling and engineering of information social issues and (ii) application environment &#151; essential aspects in the engineering of complex software systems.</div>
