Using model-to-model transformations to generate analysis models or code from architecture models is sought to promote compliance and reuse of components. The maintainability of transformations is influenced by various characteristics-as with every programming language artifact. Code metrics are often used to estimate code maintainability. However, most of(More)
Business process (BP) designs and enterprise information system (IS) designs are often not well aligned. Missing alignment may result in performance problems at run-time, such as large process execution time or overloaded IS resources. The complex interrelations between BPs and ISs are not adequately understood and considered in development so far.(More)
Most Semantic Web applications are build on top of technology based on the Semantic Web layer cake and the W3C ontology languages RDF(S) and OWL. However RDF(S) embodies a graph abstraction model and thus is represented by triple-based artifacts. Using OWL as a language for Semantic Web knowledge-bases, this abstraction no longer holds. OWL is build up on(More)
—Business process design and enterprise information system (IT system) design are often not well aligned, which leads to problems at runtime caused by neglecting the mutual impact of business processes and IT systems. Simulation is a promising approach to support the alignment of business process design and IT system design by impact prediction. Currently,(More)
Fragmentation of information across instances of different metamodels poses a significant problem for software developers and leads to a major increase in effort of transformation development. Moreover, compositions of metamodels tend to be incomplete, imprecise, and erroneous, making it impossible to present it to users or use it directly as input for(More)
When composing simulations from multiple domains, developers can choose from a long list of possible solutions. However, creating a functional and valid composition from existing simulation building blocks can be cumbersome. Existing solutions are often limited to specific platforms or require extensive and complex implementations. The Coupled and(More)
