The work presented in this paper is related to the area of situational method engineering (SME). In this domain, approaches are developed accordingly to specific project specifications. We propose to adapt an existing method construction process, namely the assembly-based one. One of the particular features of assembly-based SME approach is the selection of(More)
In Method Engineering (ME) science, the key issue is the consideration of information system development methods as fragments. Numerous ME approaches have produced several definitions of method parts. Different in nature, these fragments have nevertheless some common disadvantages: lack of implementation tools, insufficient standardization effort, and so(More)
The role of variability in Software engineering grows increasingly as it allows developing solutions that can be easily adapted to a specific context and reusing existing knowledge. In order to deal with variability in the method engineering (ME) domain, we suggest applying the notion of method families. Method components are organized as a method family,(More)
Variability has proved to be a central concept in different engineering domains to develop solutions that can be easily adapted to different organizational settings and different sets of customers at a low price. The MAP formalism has a high level of variability as it is expressed in an intentional manner through goals and strategies. However, a high level(More)
Information Systems (IS) engineering (ISE) processes contain steps where decisions must be made. Moreover, the growing role of IS in organizations involves requirements for ISE such as quality, cost and time. Considering these aspects implies that the number of researches dealing with decision-making (DM) in ISE increasingly grows. As DM becomes widespread(More)
Method Engineering (ME) is a discipline which aims to bring effective solutions to the construction, improvement and modification of the methods used to develop Information Systems (IS). Situational Method Engineering (SME) promotes the idea of retrieving, adapting and tailoring components, rather than complete methodologies, to the specific context.(More)
A number of multi-criteria decision-making methods can be used for prioritizing in different contexts. Our industry experience showed us that-at least in France and Russia-people are not aware of the existing prioritization methods and not able to select one when they are provided with a simple state of the art reference list. We therefore believe that a(More)
– A large number of multicriteria techniques have been developed to deal with different kinds of problems. Whereas each technique has pros and cons and can be more or less useful depending on the situation, few approaches were proposed to guide the selection of a technique adapted to a given situation. This paper presents a state of the art of the existing(More)
— Method Engineering (ME) for Information Systems (IS) is a response to the necessity to better fit methods with development activities requirements. Situational method engineering allows defining new methods constructed on the fly following the situation at hand. However, in the reviewed literature, the situation is not always described and there is no(More)
