Diverse development web methodologies currently exist in the field of Model-Driven Web Engineering MDWE, each of which covers different Levels of Abstraction on Model-Driven Architecture MDA: Computation Independent Model CIM, Platform Independent Model PIM, Platform Specific Model PSM, and Code. Given the high number of methodologies available, it has become necessary to define objective evaluation tools to enable development teams to improve their methodological environment and help designers…

Analysing the concept of quality in model-driven engineering literature: A systematic review
The main contribution of this work is the identification of representative trends about quality definition in MDE, and therefore, exposing the implications of the multiple quality interpretations as consequence of the diversity in Mde compliance works.
A framework for evaluating the quality of modelling languages in MDE environments A framework for evaluating the quality of modelling languages in MDE environments
The conceptual foundation of the evaluation framework, which is based on the definition of quality for model-driven engineering (MDE), is presented and the methodological and technological support of MMQEF is described.
Considerations about quality in model-driven engineering
This work presents the current state and some relevant considerations regarding quality in MDE, by identifying current categories in quality conception and by highlighting quality issues in real applications of the model-driven initiatives, and derives eight challenges for quality evaluation in Mde projects that current quality initiatives do not address sufficiently.
Considerations about quality in model-driven engineering - Current state and challenges
This work identified sixteen categories in the definition of quality in MDE and identified the five most influential authors for the works that propose definitions of quality, and proposed a scenario to illustrate quality issues in a real information system project in which multiple modelling languages were used.
Personnel Performance Appraisal Coverage in ITIL, COBIT and CMMi: A Study from the Perspective of People-CMM
This analysis uses the development of a common standard based on the tasks and processes outlined in People CMM, the standard in human resource management designed by the Software Engineering Institute, to indicate that COBIT is the only framework that presents reliable coverage in relation to personnel performance assessment.

Developing a Quality Framework for Model-Driven Engineering
This paper presents a 7-step process on how to define a quality framework that is adapted to model-driven engineering, and which integrates quality engineering with quality evaluation.
NDT. A Model-Driven Approach for Web Requirements
A general vision of Navigational Development Techniques (NDT), which is an approach to deal with requirements in Web systems, is presented based on conclusions obtained in several comparative studies and it tries to fill some gaps detected by the research community.
A Quality-Aware Engineering Process for Web Applications
This chapter introduces the necessity to consider quality management activities as part of the Web engineering (THE AUTHORS) process to improve the final quality of Web applications with respect to creative practices, and proposes the definition of measurable concepts, measures, and decision criteria in a machine-readable way that facilitate the automation of the quality evaluation process.
Requirements Engineering for Web Applications - A Comparative Study
This paper is a comparative study of the requirements handling in Web methodologies showing trends in the use of techniques for capturing, specifying and validating Web requirements.
Classifying web metrics using the web quality model
To classify the most important metrics proposed for web information systems, it was found that about 44 percent of metrics are related to “presentation” and that most metrics (48 percent) are usability metrics.
A survey on web modeling approaches for ubiquitous web applications
This paper aims to give an in-depth comparison of seven modeling approaches supporting the development of UWAs by applying a detailed set of evaluation criteria and by demonstrating its applicability on basis of an exemplary tourism web application.
