Meta-Modeling

 Meta-Modeling” Please respond to the following:

  • A meta-model may be used to relate goal, object, agent, operation, and behavior models. Determine whether or not a system model that represents a meta-model could be functional without all five of the views defined. Provide a rationale.
  • Determine whether you would use UML class diagrams or another tool to describe meta-models. Support your position.

A meta-model may be used to relate goal, object, agent, operation, and behavior models. Determine whether or not a system model that represents a meta-model could be functional without all five of the views defined. Provide a rationale.

A system model cannot be functional without all five views.   Each view enables the requirements engineer (RE) to understand and explain the details of a multi-view system (Lamsweerde, 2009).  First, each meta-model is needed to describe details within specific concepts, such as goals, objects, and agents.  Second, each model has a modelling framework and language for understanding the module and provides inter and intra view consistency rules for ensuring that each component in one model satisfies a component in another model (Lamsweerde, 2009).

Determine whether you would use UML class diagrams or another tool to describe meta-models. Support your position.

I would use a specialized version of a UML class diagram for building metal models.  Such a class diagram would have the correct shapes for defining goals, agents, and operations.  It would also have the correct symbols for defining relationships.  For example, entity-relationship diagrams is a type of class diagram used for modeling objects within databases and provides notation such as crows foot for defining relationships.
