  2. 2. Context 2
  3. 3. Motivation • Dynamic edge/fog/cloud infrastructure are very complex and specific and we need to run fast and flexible simulation to make management decisions; • To simulate these scenarios, we need an unique simulation configurations file with scenarios requirements; and • Simulation configuration are time consuming and require experienced staff with specialist expertise. 3
  4. 4. Approach • Model an abstraction that can be easily reconfigured using the Model-driven Development methodology; • Define abstract entities that should be mapped to the model and its relations; • Create constrains rules to the visual modelling that implements a great variety of business rules; • Automatically generate outputs that fit the RECAP simulation needs. 4
  5. 5. Theories • Model-driven Development (MDD) is an evolution of the software diagrams and software development methodologies that deal with high level abstractions to define their system requirements, and then automatically generate code; • To make use of MDD, it is necessary to define a Domain Specific Modeling Language (DSML) to describe the system requirements that often feature a special graphical notation (concrete syntax) that helps to improve the clarity and comprehensibility of models. 5

  8. 8. Application 8
  9. 9. Application 9
  10. 10. In a nutshell… • An application of the Model-driven Development methodology; • Easy configuration and flexibility to change during the business analysis process; • High level solution that do not require a configuration specialist; • Build-in business model rules; • Better documentation and increased quality of the simulation parameters set-up. 10
