Title: Model Driven Business Engineering (MDBE)
Abstract: Modern business processes usually demand the utilization of a variety of business frameworks and methodologies in order to offer a concrete business solution. Many times, the use of such frameworks is imposed by clients such as governments or large organizations. However, models contained in such frameworks often lack formal semantics and clarity. Moreover, even if they describe the processes very analytically there is a risk of failing to take into account environmental factors like for example business culture. This may lead to inconsistencies between solutions, improper model selection or even modelling confusion. The maintainability, reusability and agility of such models tends to require manual work and it is vulnerable to human errors.
Software engineering used to experience similar problems and solved these by the introduction of a model driven based approach called Model Driven Architecture (MDA). This seminar proposes a transfer of concepts and logic from the MDA to a new framework for Model Driven Business Engineering (MDBE).
