Abstract

Multi-level modeling is a modeling paradigm that has been becoming more and more popular in recent years. The ultimate goal of multi-level modeling is to reduce accidental complexity that may arise from modeling methodologies that are not suitable to describe multi-level models. However, currently, most multi-level modeling approaches are dependent on classical modeling facilities, like OMG’s four-level modeling architecture. The potency notion is one of the most widely-used enablers of multi-level modeling that governs the depth model elements can be instantiated at. In this paper, we propose an alternative implementation to the first incarnation of the potency notion, the so-called classic potency notion. Its multi-level nature is mapped into our multi-layer modeling framework, which liberates it from direct dependence on classical modeling facilities. We examine the proposed mapping in details and also demonstrate it via a simple case study. This work is aimed as the first step towards a generic multi-level modeling framework where researchers can freely experiment with novel multi-level modeling ideas and can share and compare their results without worrying about any sorts of tool dependence.
