Architecturally Significant Requirements, Reference Architecture, and Metamodel for Knowledge Management in Information Technology Services

Christoph Miksovic, Olaf Zimmermann
2011 2011 Ninth Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on Software Architecture  
In this paper, we present a reference architecture and a decision process-oriented knowledge metamodel that we synthesized from the domain-specific functional requirements and quality attributes.  ...  Methods, models, and tools supporting explicit knowledge management strategies have been proposed in recent years.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT We would like to thank Thomas Diethelm and Ivan Kuraj for their contributions to the project and the knowledge management solution presented in this paper.  ...

Towards Methods for Model-Based Software Development [article]

Valdemar Vicente Graciano Neto, Luiz Fernando Batista Loja
2017 arXiv   pre-print
However, there is a lack of systematic knowledge that effectively guide how work should be done in a variety of areas.  ...  In this direction, this paper presents a a speculative and preliminary emerging results on the establishment of methods for MBSE. We report some insights on the conception of methods for MBSE.  ...  Thus, in those situations, software engineers come back again to the pragmatism and experience-based decisions, since there is no a theoretical basis to ground their decisions.  ...

Towards knowledge sharing in disaster management: An agent oriented knowledge analysis framework [article]

Dedi Iskandar Inan, Ghassan Beydoun, Simon Opper
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Disaster Management (DM) is a complex set of interrelated activities. The activities are often knowledge intensive and time sensitive. Sharing the required knowledge timely is critical for DM.  ...  In this paper, we introduce an agent-based knowledge analysis method to convert DMPs into a collection of knowledge units that can be stored into a unified repository.  ...  At the end, a DM knowledge repository is available to support DM decisions. The remainder of this section details each of steps in our knowledge analysis framework.  ...

Automated Planning for Supporting Knowledge-Intensive Processes [chapter]

Sheila Katherine Venero, Bradley Schmerl, Leonardo Montecchi, Julio Cesar dos Reis, Cecília Mary Fischer Rubira
2020 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
Knowledge-intensive Processes (KiPs) are processes characterized by high levels of unpredictability and dynamism. Their process structure may not be known before their execution.  ...  The generated plan model relies on a metamodel called METAKIP that represents the basic elements of KiPs. Our solution explores Markov Decision Processes (MDP) to generate plan models.  ...  METAKIP: A Metamodel for KiPs Definition Our previous work proposed an artifact-centric metamodel [20] for the definition of KiPs, aiming to support knowledge workers during the decision-making process  ...

Towards a decision-aware declarative process modeling language for knowledge-intensive processes

Steven Mertens, Frederik Gailly, Geert Poels
2017 Expert systems with applications  
The latter makes it possible to encapsulate the knowledge that governs the process flow by offering support for decision modeling.  ...  In this paper we have composed a list of requirements that a modeling language should fulfil in order to adequately support the modeling of this type of processes.  ...  This allows for complex decision logic to be modeled in one decision table or be spread over multiple tables. Fig. 3 shows the metamodel for decision tables.  ...

Specifying Collaborative System Requirements in Terms of Platforms and Services [chapter]

Igor T. Hawryszkiewycz
2008 Information Systems Development  
Increasing collaboration in business processes has resulted in increased demand for information systems that support collaboration.  ...  Many system development methodologies, however, are oriented towards defining processes that are fixed both in their process steps and process functions.  ...  Predefined processes provide services for the exchange of simple messages. In collaborative processes, communication services are often oriented towards a combination of limited collaborative goals.  ...
