In Situational Method Engineering, the concepts of both fragment and chunk have been proposed as the atomic element. These are examined here in terms of their conceptual integrity and in terms of how they may be used in method construction, drawing parallels to show that the similarities are more than the differences. The new ISO/IEC 24744 standard(More)
Software development methodologies may be described in the context of an underpinning metamodel, but the precise mechanisms that permit them to be defined in terms of their metamodels are usually difficult to explain and do not cover all needs. For example, it is difficult to devise a way that allows the definition of properties of the elements that compose(More)
In the context of creating methodologies for MAS system development using a situational method engineering approach, we focus in this paper on the creation and evaluation of a generic metamodel to serve as a representational infrastructure to unify the work product component of MAS methodologies. The resultant metamodel does not focus on any class of MAS,(More)
Two main candidates for the atomic element to be used in Situational Method Engineering (SME) have been proposed: the " method fragment " and the " method chunk ". These are examined here in terms of their conceptual integrity and in terms of how they may be used in method construction. Also, parallels are drawn between the two approaches. Secondly, the(More)
