  1. 1. Towards Common Ground in SME: an Ontology of Method Descriptors<br />Adrian Iacovelli, CarineSouveyet<br />University Paris 1 Panthéon - Sorbonne<br />Free Powerpoint Templates<br />
  2. 2. A Multitude of SME Building Blocks<br /><ul><li>SME diversity drawbacks
  3. 3. Confusion for a non ME expert [Agerfalk et al. 07 – Panel ME’07]
  4. 4. Lack of standard & interoperability [Deneckère 08]
  5. 5. Lack of implementation tool [Deneckère 08]
  6. 6. Reaching a common ground ?</li></ul>A common modular construct?<br />A coexistence of constructs serving different purposes?<br /><ul><li>Diversity is purposeful
  7. 7. Reaching a semantic common ground</li></li></ul><li>Proposition<br /><ul><li> A SME domain Ontology
  8. 8. Categorizes things that exist or may exist in a domain
  9. 9. Agreement on the five ways of a method [Seligmann 89, Plihon 95]
  10. 10. Defining core concepts of method descriptors.
  11. 11. Common “semantic ground”
  12. 12. Exploring usage scenarios
  13. 13. Possible opportunities of the Method descriptors Ontology</li></li></ul><li>Method Descriptors Ontology<br />Way of Supporting<br />MethodDescriptor<br />Way of Working<br />Way of Thinking<br />Way of Controlling<br />Way of Modelling<br />
  14. 14. Method Fragment Structure<br />
  15. 15. Method Chunk Structure<br />
  16. 16. Method Component Structure<br />
  17. 17. OPF Method Component Structure<br />
  18. 18. SO2M Method Service Structure<br />
  19. 19. Exploring Usage Scenarios (1/2)<br /><ul><li> An educational manner for non ME experts
  20. 20. A basic semantic common ground of the domain
  21. 21. Reduces the confusion drawback
  22. 22. A basis for ME reasoning systems
  23. 23. Decisional helping for ME engineers</li></li></ul><li>Exploring Usage Scenarios (2/2)<br /><ul><li> A support for a ME knowledge base
  24. 24. Retrieving ME knowledge from different method bases.
  25. 25. Reducing interoperability issues
  26. 26. Domain knowledge for a Service based ME approach
  27. 27. Indexing and querying method services in a service registry
  28. 28. A semantic service tool for retrieving Method Services</li></li></ul><li>Conclusion<br /><ul><li> A Semantic common ground for SME method descriptors
  29. 29. Shows the richness of the ME community
  30. 30. Each Approach defines new concepts
  31. 31. First step for reducing SME drawbacks
  32. 32. The SME diversity is purposeful
  33. 33. Moving SME approaches to service orientation
