Addressing this issue, we propose a novel method assembled by situational method engineering from a set of existing service identification methods, taking the best aspects from each of them. In this paper, we present an instantiation of the situational method engineering approach alongside the details of the constructed method. We also provide a demonstration of the method with an illustrative scenario based on a real-life business case.
