MegaM@Rt2 Project is a major European effort towards the model-driven engineering of complex Cyber-Physical systems combined with runtime analysis. Both areas are dealt within the same methodology to enjoy the mutual benefits through sharing and tracking various engineering artifacts. The project involves 27 partners that contribute with diverse research and industrial practices addressing real-life case study challenges stemming from 9 application domains. These partners jointly progress towards a common framework to support those application domains with model-driven engineering, verification, and runtime analysis methods. In this paper, we present the motivation for the project, the current approach and the intermediate results in terms of tools, research work and practical evaluation on use cases from the project. We also discuss outstanding challenges and proposed approaches to address them.

This paper reports on the first Workshop on Model-Driven Engineering for Design-Runtime Interaction in Complex Systems (also called MDE@DeRun 2018) that took place during the STAF 2018 week. It explains the main objectives, content and results of the event. Based on these, the paper also proposes initial directions to explore for further research in the workshop area.

A major challenge for the European electronic components and systems (ECS) industry is to increase productivity and reduce costs while ensuring safety and quality. Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) principles have already shown valuable capabilities for the development of ECSs but still need to scale to support real-world scenarios implied by the full deployment and use of complex electronic systems, such as Cyber-Physical Systems, and real-time systems. Moreover, maintaining efficient traceability, integration and communication between fundamental stages of the development lifecycle (i.e., design time and runtime) is another challenge to the scalability of MDE tools and techniques. This paper presents “MegaModelling at runtime — Scalable model-based framework for continuous development and runtime validation of complex systems” (MegaM@Rt2), an ECSEL–JU project whose main goal is to address the above mentioned challenges. Driven by both large and small industrial enterprises, with the support of research partners and technology providers, MegaM@Rt2 aims to deliver a framework of tools and methods for: (i) system engineering/design and continuous development,(ii) related runtime analysis, and (iii) global model and traceability management.

A major challenge for the European electronic industry is to enhance productivity by ensuring quality of development, integration and maintenance while reducing the associated costs. Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) principles and techniques have already shown promising capabilities, but they still need to scale up to support real-world scenarios implied by the full deployment and use of complex electronic components and systems. Moreover, maintaining efficient traceability, integration, and communication between two fundamental system life cycle phases (design time and runtime) is another challenge requiring the scalability of MDE. This paper presents an overview of the ECSEL1 project entitled “MegaModelling at runtime – Scalable model-based framework for continuous development and runtime validation of complex systems” (MegaM@Rt2), whose aim is to address the above mentioned challenges facing MDE. Driven by both large and small industrial enterprises, with the support of research partners and technology providers, MegaM@Rt2 aims to deliver a framework of tools and methods for: 1) system engineering/design and continuous development, 2) related runtime analysis and 3) global models and traceability management. Diverse industrial use cases (covering strategic domains such as aeronautics, railway, construction and telecommunications) will integrate and demonstrate the validity of the MegaM@Rt2 solution. This paper provides an overview of the MegaM@Rt2 project with respect to its approach, mission, objectives as well as to its implementation details. It further introduces the consortium as well as describes the work packages and few already produced deliverables.
