Software Manufacture Models

Software Manufacture Models (SWMaMos) are special process models, where the characterization of MDE activities captures how artifact relations change. We introduced SWMaMos as an integration of development processes and model management to enable an analysis how MDE enforces an order of development activities (i.e. restricts the way processes can look like).

Currently, we introduce SWMaMo proto pattern associated to changeability concerns, to enable an analysis of changeability support, since changeability is one of the most crucial producivity factors for agile processes and incremental development in general.
