16:45h - 18:00h Discussion Groups

We aim to give room for discussion groups. Goal of discussion groups is to jointly identify and outline directions for future research, i.e. to create a research roadmap. The choice of the discussion topics will be done together with the participants in order to identify and cover the most important research needs and interests. Possible directions for the discussions are (but are not limited to):

  • What aspects of the a process, e.g. team structure, can or needs be subject to optimization for an MDE approach?
  • How can synergy effects between MDE and processes be used?
  • Can established processes be streamlined by using MDE?
  • What questions need to be addressed, to enable a joint maturation of processes and MDE approaches within a company?
