A methodology for CIM modelling and its transformation to PIM



Developing with Model Driven Architecture is nowadays widely used starting with a CIM that can be transformed to models of low abstraction (PIM, PSM) that can be used to generate the code. The CIM represents the highest level of abstraction of the approach which allowing modeling system’s requirement. However, there is no standard method to build this type of model or how to transform it to lower level of abstraction (PIM) which is considered the final objective of building such model.

This paper provides an approach to build the CIM that can be transformed (semi-) automatically later to lower levels of abstraction in PIMs.  Thereby, the proposed architecture represents both the static and dynamic view of the system based on the business process model. Meanwhile, the PIM level is represented by the Domain Diagram class and Sequence Diagram of Systems External behavior. Thus, the proposal helps bridging the gap between those that are experts about the domain and its requirements, and those that are experts of the system design and development.
