Increasing competition on markets induces a vital need for companies to improve their efficiency and reactivity. For this, a solution is to deploy, improve and manage their processes while paying a special attention on the abilities of the resources those involve. Particularly, their interoperability is considered in this article as a challenge conditioning the success of the deployment. Consequently, this paper provides a comparison of existing interoperability assessment solutions and presents a methodology to assess interoperability of people, material resources and organisation units involved or that could be involved in a process, all along the deployment effort. This methodology is usable for prevention, detection and correction of interoperability problems. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source

Component-based development promotes a software development process that focuses on component reuse. How to describe a desired component before searching in the repository? How to find an existing component that fulfills the required functionalities? How to capture the system personalization based on its constitutive components' customization? To answer these questions, this paper claims that components should be described using three different forms at three development stages: architecture specification, configuration and assembly. However, no architecture description language proposes such a detailed description for components that supports such a three step component-based development. This paper proposes a three-level Adl, named Dedal, that enables the explicit and separate definitions of component roles, component classes, and component instances. Copyright 2012 ACM. Source

In order to ensure thermal energy efficiency and follow government's thermal guidance, more flexible and efficient buildings' thermal controls are required. This paper focuses on proposing scalable, efficient and simple thermal control approach based on imprecise knowledge of buildings' specificities. Its main principle is a weak data-dependency which ensures the scalability and simplicity of our thermal enhancement approach. For this, an extended thermal qualitative model is proposed. It is based on a qualitative description of influences that actions' parameters may have on buildings' thermal performances. Our thermal qualitative model is enriched by collecting and assessing previous thermal control performances. Thus, an approximate reasoning for a smart thermal control becomes effective based on our extended thermal qualitative model. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2014. Source

Systems Engineering (SE) is a tried and tested methodological approach to design and test new products. It acts as a model-based engineering approach and promotes for this purpose a set of standardized collaborative processes, modelling languages and frameworks. In a complementary way, Enterprise Modelling (EM) provides concepts, techniques and means to model businesses along with their processes. The purpose of this paper is to provide a method for the deployment of SE processes considering interoperability and building bridges between SE and EM. An application case is given illustrating the definition of the stakeholder requirements definition process defined in the ISO 15288:2008. © 2012 Springer Berlin Heidelberg. Source
