Description

Models are a fundamental aspect of enterprise architecture, as they capture the concepts and relationships that describe the essentials of the different enterprise domains. A meta-model, in model-driven engineering parlance, defines the rules to create and update such models. Over time, to keep up with the need to capture a more complex reality in their enterprise architecture models, organizations need to enrich the meta-model and upgrade the existing models accordingly. In this article, we present a catalog of operations that enables the automation of co-evolution of enterprise architecture models, driven by a set of meta-model changes. The operations presented refer to the evolution of the ArchiMate meta-model since it is commonly used in the design of business architecture models.
