Enterprise Modelling

European Projects:

Process modelling techniques research working group (PROMOTER-2)

Objective : To exploit this emerging European research community, and its strong links with industrial partners, to collectively deepen remaining open issues, to co-ordinate research activities, and to support dissemination of results. Its work is based on a few simple observations: IT systems are becoming more closely integrated with the business, business systems evolve, then IT  systems MUST evolve at the same rate.

Achievements : The main achievements of PROMOTER can be summarised as follows:

- Establishment of a series of European Workshops on Software Process Technology: EWSPT; proceedings are published by Springer Verlag as LNCS n° 635,772,913.
- Creation of working groups to support co-operation between European researchers and provide common material for training and for publishing books.
- Publication of a book illustrating the results of several European research efforts: "Software Process Modelling and Technology" A. Finkestein, J. Kramer, B. Nuseiben editors, RSP ISBN 0 86380 169 2, Wiley 0 471 95206 0
- Preparation of a second book, entitled "Software Process Technology Principles", it presents the synthesis we did on the different aspects of the technology: metaprocess, process modelling languages, architecture, transactions, social aspects of software process perspectives.

Completion date : 06/99
