Abstract

This paper describes the advancements of the Topological Functioning Model (TFM) for Model Driven Architecture (MDA) approach. This approach recognizes the computation independent nature of a TFM and suggests it to be used as the Computation Independent Model (CIM) within MDA, thus partially automating system analysis. Since the proposal of this approach, there have been a number of significant improvements, revealing new possibilities for system analysis, domain modeling and system design modeling. These advancements include integrating knowledge engineering with system analysis for domain modeling and acquiring a Topological Class Diagram, thus providing unique features within Platform Specific Model (PSM) for further transformation and code generation.
