Incorporating MDA into the Development Process

MDA defines certain types of models to be created (PIM/PSM), but doesn’t explain how to fit them into a development process nor how to partition business information between the models. Other industry standards, such as RUP, define a detailed development process, while RM-ODP provides guidance on separation of concerns in enterprise systems.

This session will present a framework, following RM-ODP viewpoints, for fitting MDA’s Platform Independent Models into the RUP development process to reduce duplication of effort within the various RUP models and verify requirements through traceability across the models. An example will illustrate the framework using Rational Rose.
