The Quality Engineering Competence Centre

Living Models

Living Models focuses on model-based management, design and operation of dynamically evolving systems.

In order to materialise an integrated view three major research challenges have to be met.

  • To provide a coherent view of the quality status of the system (integrating the perspectives of all stakeholders, ranging from the IT managers and the software engineers to the system administrators)
  • To keep track of the quality status while the system evolves
  • To support the collaboration of stakeholders for achieving the necessary quality level

A Living Models environment makes rigorous use of models to bridge the gap between the domains and the related stakeholders.

Living Models provides a fully change-driven process for managing, designing and operating IT systems.
