Bilateral Grants with Industry

Partnership with Thales

Dates: 2011-2014

This partnership with Thales Research and Technology explores variability management both in modeling and metamodeling (i.e., design and implementation of software languages). At the model level, this collaboration is a direct follow-up of the MOVIDA and the MUTATION projects, in which we explore the challenges related to software product line and multi-view engineering for the different development phases of systems of systems construction. At the metamodeling level, we investigate how the notions of variability modeling and management can serve the rigorous definition of families of modeling languages, which address the different interpretations of UML needed to model the different viewpoints in the systems engineering.

The project enrolls 4 faculty members and 2 PhD students from the Triskell team. This year, we keep working on the CVL usage in the Thales context.
