A COOPERATIVE METHOD FOR SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE USING WORKFLOW TECHNOLOGIES

Abstract

Reverse engineering has arisen as a fundamental alternative in all reengineering processes. Its objective is to recover design specifications and workflows (WF) to construct a representation of the system with a high degree of abstraction. This paper describes the basic aspects of the EXINUS tool, enabling the generation of process specifications and user interfaces in an organisation or business. The main advantage is the possibility of modelling specifications of both the organisation’s current status and new methods generated in the system. We also propose a cooperative work system in which users participate in system development, using the advantages of the proposed tool. This methodology provides a high degree of reliability in the development of the new system, creating competitive advantages for the organisation by reducing times and costs in the generation of the information system (IS).
