Designing Multiple Process Modelling Languages for Flexible, Enactable Process Models in a MetaCASE Environment

Abstract: The modelling of information systems development (ISD) processes and the support of enacting ISD processes in CASE have been recognised as important research issues. There are several approaches for modelling and managing ISD processes and even their metaprocesses but concentrating solely on software engineering. In this paper we focus on the CASE support for process aspects of all ISD methods. Our approach does not take a stand for any particular process modelling approach, such as the model’s orientation towards activities, products, or decisions. On the contrary, it can be used to provide method, application and project specific concepts and process model types and thereby process modelling languages), which take into account also the ‘high-level’ situational factors of IS development: the stakeholders’ beliefs, values and their way of perceiving IS. This approach is designed and being implemented into a metaCASE environment MetaEdit+
