From Method Fragments to Method Services


In Method Engineering (ME) science, the key issue is the consideration of information system development methods as fragments. Numerous ME approaches have produced several definitions of method parts. Different in nature, these fragments have nevertheless some common disadvantages: lack of implementation tools, insufficient standardization effort, and so on. On the whole, the observed drawbacks are related to the shortage of usage orientation. We have proceeded to an in-depth analysis of existing method fragments within a comparison framework in order to identify their drawbacks. We suggest overcoming them by an improvement of the “method service” concept. In this paper, the method service is defined through the service paradigm applied to a specific method fragment – chunk. A discussion on the possibility to develop a unique representation of method fragment completes our contribution.
