Session Title Moving from self-built MDSD tools towards a standard tool chain

Session Type Case Study

Duration 75 minutes

Session Description

Ever had the same experience? We wanted to do some Model Driven Software Development but the available tools did not fit our requirements or were too expensive or too complicated, or, or, or... So we started our own MDSD tools, which evolved and grew, and grew, and now? At some point we realized that maintaining our own MDSD tools was very expensive so we thought about switching (back) to an adaptable Standard MDSD Toolchain.

This Case Study is based on a real world project, where we developed devices with MDSD tools.(self-built and with a standard tool chain). Bernhard discusses the pros and cons of both approaches and also shows how they migrate(d) from self-built MDSD towards a standard tool chain.
