Maturity of model driven engineering for embedded control systems from a mechatronic perspective
2005 (English)In: Model driven engineering for distributed real-time embedded systems / [ed] Sebastien Gerard, Jean-Philippe Babau, Joel Champeau, Hermes Science Publications, 2005Chapter in book (Refereed)
Model driven engineering (MDE), as one key technique for promotingquality and cost-efficiency in the development of embedded systems, is currentlystudied intensively both in industry and academia. However, MDE is currentlyinterpreted and approached in many different ways, typically being applied mainlyas a basis for partial subsystem development. We provide a definition of MDE andbased on this investigate the drivers, opportunities and problems facing MDE. Aframework is provided to understand and compare different MDE approaches. Wediscuss adoption of MDE in different fields of engineering and, relating to theCapability Maturity Model, present a model of MDE maturity and illustrate itsapplication for automotive applications. The model allows explanation of potentialproblems perceived when introducing MDE and can thus hopefully be an aid whenintroducing MDE or when analyzing problems with an MDE approach. Problemsrelated to MDE are concluded to be the result of mismatches between the processmaturity level, the drivers and the supporting technology
