Abstract

ONE PROMISING APPROACH TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF GENERALIZED MODELS OF COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS IS COMPOSITION OF MODELS FROM COMPONENT MODEL MODULES. IN THIS APPROACH, MODELS OF INDIVIDUAL SYSTEM COMPONENTS ARE DEVELOPED AND SUBSEQUENTLY LINKED INTO A MODEL BY MODEL COMPOSITION SOFTWARE. AN INTEGRATED SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENT SUPPORTS THIS TECHNOLOGY BY MANAGING A MODELBASE OF MODEL MODULES PROVIDING FOR THE DELETION, RENAMING, REPORTING AND DOCUMENTATION OF MODEL MODULES. IN ADDITION, THIS ENVIRONMENT PROVIDES ACCESS TO AMODEL MODULE BUILD/EDITOR FOR MODULE ENTRY. ACCESS TO THE COMPOSER FOR BUILDING MODELS FROM MODEL MODULES IN THE MODELBASE IS PROVIDED AS WELL.
