Model-Driven Development Day 2011 29th April in Eindhoven.

Eric Verhulst, CEO/CTO of Altreonic will present "Beyond modeling: let the system meet the specifications."

While modeling is an important step forward in getting software right, it is often thought to be a sufficient condition. The role of modeling is to verify that a specific implementation is feasible; different types of models are needed. The implementation itself is to be seen as a model as well. To get it right, the process needs to start at the requirements level, even before any model is being considered.
An important aspect of modeling approaches is that they introduce the concept of meta-levels. This allows to reason at a more abstract level. The challenge is that different views need to be combined, in particular the development or design view and the process view. While these views are often seen as separate activities, in practice they are very much connected because engineering is also team work executed by humans.
In the presentation we will show how a rigorous systems/software engineering approach can be combined with an Agile process that takes both views into account.
