Constructing Tool Chains based on SPEM Process Models
2012 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The development of embedded systems requires a number of tools and it is widely believed that integrating the tools into an automated tool chain can improve the productivity of development. However, tool chains are not accepted by practitioners if they are not aligned with the established development culture, processes and standards. Process models exist for a variety of reasons, i.e., for documenting, planning or tracking progress in a development project and SPEM is the standardized formalism by the OMG for this purpose. We explore in how far a SPEM process models can be used for creating the skeleton of a tool chain, which is aligned with the process. We identify a number of relationship patterns between the development process and its supporting tool chain and show how the patterns can be used for constructing a tool chain. In two case studies, we examine the practical applicability of the patterns, when tailoring the design of a tool chain to a development process.
