Method engineering is a research area that addresses the need for the construction and the flexible and situation-specific composition of methods. Our research objective is to develop a Method Engineering Metamodel that serves software process improvement & management in all it facets.
The report at hands documents two years of method engineering research. It summarizes the research methods and the respective outcomes. The report serves as data sink in which we summarize all (tentative) findings. Furthermore, the report comprises the first outcomes, which are a step towards the creation of a method engineering metamodel that lays the foundation to be implemented in various tools.
