A Modelling Approach to Multi-Domain Traceability
University of York, York, United Kingdom.
2014 (English)Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Traceability is an important concern in projects that span dierent engineering domains. Traceability can also be mandated, exploited and managed across the engineering lifecycle, and may involve defining connections between heterogeneous models. As a result, traceability can be considered to be multi-domain.

This thesis introduces the concept and challenges of multi-domain traceability and explains how it can be used to support typical traceability scenarios. It proposes a model-based approach to develop a traceability solution which eectively operates across multiple engineering domains. The approach introduced a collection of tasks and structures which address the identified challenges for a traceability solution in multi-domain projects. The proposed approach demonstrates that modelling principles and MDE techniques cab help to address current challenges and consequently improve the eectiveness of a multi-domain traceability solution.

A prototype of the required tooling to support the approach is implemented with EMF and atop Epsilon; it consists of an implementation of the proposed structures (models) and model management operations to support traceability. Moreover, the approach is illustrated in the context of two safety-critical projects where multi-domain traceability is required to underpin certification arguments.
