Towards Human-centric Model-driven Software Engineering

John Grundy, Hourieh Khalajzadeh, Jennifer Mcintosh

Abstract

Many current software systems suffer from a lack of consideration of the human differences between end users. This includes age, gender, language, culture, emotions, personality, education, physical and mental challenges, and so on. We describe our work looking to consider these characteristics by incorporation of human centric-issues throughout the model-driven engineering process lifecycle. We propose the use of the co-creational ”living lab” model to better collect human-centric issues in the software requirements. We focus on modelling these human-centric factors using domain-specific visual languages, themselves human-centric modelling artefacts. We describe work to incorporate these human-centric issues into model-driven engineering design models, and to support both code generation and run-time adaptation to different user human factors. We discuss continuous evaluation of such human-centric issues in the produced software and feedback of user reported defects to requirements and model refinement.
