Position Paper: Towards a Minimalistic Modeling Paradigm

Gábor Kövesdán, Márk Asztalos, and László Lengyel

Abstract—Model-Driven Software Engineering (MDSE) has put a great emphasis on modeling to deal with the rapidly growing complexity of software systems. This leads to that models become more complex and detailed as they evolve. In contrast to the vision that such models are able to deal with this complexity, there are several cases in which simple models better support the requirements. In this paper, three technology trends are presented. The success of these trends lays in using lightweight models. Of course, inherently complex systems tend to use complex models but the main goal is to focus modeling on supporting requirements and avoid adding unnecessary details. After the explanation of the technology trends, their key success factors are identified. By these success factors, we outline some considerations that facilitate maintaining the complexity of models low.

Index Terms—Modeling, model-driven software engineering, agility.
