From the 90's, the telecommunications service creation industry has undergone radical change. Services have shifted from being based on a switching environment to being mainly based on software. To remain competitive in these new dynamic conditions of an open market, telecommunications organizations need to produce high quality services at low prices within(More)
Enterprise Engineering offers a global view on multiple concerns such as processes, stakeholders, supporting technology. This global view is sustained by Enterprise Architecture frameworks, languages, tools and standards. The current effort has been focused on general purpose Enterprise Architecture frameworks, modeling languages and tools, which allow(More)
The increasingly competitive environment pressures telecommunications service providers to reduce their concept-to-market time. This time is influenced by a multitude of factors. For the benefit of telecom service designers, this paper focuses on increasing the degree of automation, offering team collaboration capabilities and bridging heterogeneous(More)
The competitive market forces organizations to be agile and flexible so as to react robustly to complex events. Modeling helps managing this complexity. However, in order to model an enterprise, many stakeholders, with different expertise, must work together and take decisions. These decisions and their rationale are not always captured explicitly, in a(More)
The mobile agent technology is emerging as a useful new way of building large distributed systems. The advantages of mobile agents over the traditional client-server model are mainly non-functional. We believe that one of the reasons preventing the widespread use of mobile agents is that non-functional properties are not easily grasped by system designers.(More)
The development of large and complex systems involves many people, stakeholders. Engineeringly speaking, one way to control this complexity is by designing and analyzing the system from different perspectives. For each perspective, stakeholders benefit from means, tools, languages, specific to their activity domain. A Domain Specific Language (DSL) per(More)
More and more, educational frameworks and accreditation bodies recommend implementing a system to evaluate and improve the quality of higher education institutions. This paper describes a student self-evaluation of a French engineering school which was carried out with an external institution as client. It describes the methodology and standards adopted by(More)
It is often said that Generation Y students have little professional ideal, uncertainty and indecision dominating their professional future appraisal. Engineering program designers are now faced with such new student generations. They certainly must trust students to finally find their own way, but they must also give them a sense of responsibility so as to(More)
Incoming students in post-secondary education often perceive Computer Science (CS) under a series of stereotypes. While it is certainly difficult to define CS, it seems still possible to grasp its scope through comprehensive points of view, addressing for example its foundations , technologies, and uses. This paper proposes a retrospective analysis of a(More)
