The development of an interactive system is a complex problem, which is continuously growing with the evolving technology, i.e. growing cooperation between actors in distributed locations, or future application of adaptive systems. Model-based approaches can be very helpful to manage this complexity, because models can be described on different levels of abstraction, focused on the relevant information in a structured way. One advantage of model-based approaches is, that these models can be analysed in multiple ways, e.g. it can be checked for consistency, safety (formal methods) or efficiency.
In WP2, we will develop modelling languages that support the modelling of adaptive and cooperative Systems (AdCoS), as well as editors for the specification of these models. The modelling languages can be used to model the AdCoS in WP6-9. In WP4 evaluation methods are developed based on the models defined in WP2. The models will also be used in WP3 to define and analyse Adaptation, and are employed to guide design and evaluation in WP5. The developed models will contribute to the common meta-model of the HF-RTP in WP1.
