Presentation by Dr. Iris Reinhartz-Berger from the University of Haifa about her research (14/11/2016)
Dr. Iris Reinhartz-Berger present her work titled
"Can Domain Modeling be Automated? Levels of Automation in Domain Modeling"
Domain models are representations of areas of knowledge that use
common concepts for describing phenomena, requirements, problems,
capabilities, and solutions. Domain modeling is time consuming and
error prone. Variability analysis plays an important role in creating
comprehensive domain models automatically or semi-automatically.
In this talk I will review the challenges in automating domain
modeling and discuss how variability analysis can contribute.
Specifically, I will concentrate on an ontological and semantic
approach which examines software behaviors and use them to analyze the
variability, as well as commonality, of the domain of discourse. A
tool named SOVA – Semantic and Ontological Variability Analysis – will
be presented. The tool utilizes software requirements, test cases, and
code to conduct the required analyses.
