On the use of model transformation for the automation of product derivation process in SPL

Nesrine Lahiani, Djamal Bennouar
2018 Acta Universitatis Sapientiae: Informatica  
Product Derivation represents one of the main challenges that Software Product Line (SPL) faces.  ...  In this work, we use ATL as a model-to-model transformation language and Acceleo as a model-to-text transformation language.The proposed approach is discussed with e-Health product line applications.  ...  These guidelines rely both on a multimodel that represents the product line from multiple viewpoints as well as on a derivation process that makes use of this multimodel to derive a product architecture  ...

A simulation environment for multimodeling

Paul A. Fishwick
1993 Discrete event dynamic systems  
We present a multimodel approach which overcomes this limitation, and we illustrate the technique using a fairly simple scenario: boiling water.  ...  Multimodeling has provided us with a mechanism for building models that are capable of producing answers over a wide range of fidelity. [  ...  As systems become large and complex, the analyst will require simulation software that can support a wide variety of model types.  ...

Towards Multiple Model Synchronization with Comprehensive Systems [chapter]

Patrick Stünkel, Harald König, Yngve Lamo, Adrian Rutle
2020 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Our approach is based on the definition of partial commonalities among a set of aligned models.  ...  A recent Dagstuhl seminar on multidirectional transformations made it clear that there is a need for further investigations in the domain of general multiple model synchronization simply because not every  ...  This procedure, a.k.a. model matching, has been studied in several domains: databases [35] , ontologies [15] , MDE [23] , graph transformation [14] and software product lines [53] .  ...

Computational Reasoning across Multiple Models

G. Tsafnat, E. W. Coiera
2009 JAMIA Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association  
A b s t r a c t Computational support of clinical decisions frequently requires the integration of data in a variety of formats and from multiple sources and domains.  ...  In this paper, the authors examine the use of multimodels (models composed of several daughter models) and explore three major research challenges to reasoning across multiple models: model selection,  ...  While this blurs the line between the multimodel and its daughters, this is a multimodel because each daughter model is developed, tested, and validated independently of the multimodel. 29 The models  ...

2010 Bulletin of The American Meteorological Society - (BAMS)  
The hope is that multimodel ensembles will provide an affordable approach to the classical goal of increasing the hit rate for prediction of high-impact weather without increasing the false-alarm rate.  ...  In addition, there has been a strong interest in the development of multimodel ensembles, whether based on a set of single (deterministic) forecasts from different systems, or on a set of ensemble forecasts  ...  A comparison of 5-day forecasts, shown in Fig. 7 , illustrates the positive impact of the multimodel approach at this lead time.  ...
