SPMDSL Language Model - Onto a DSL for Agile Use case driven Software Projects’ Management

Abstract

Project management involves applying knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements. Each project’s unique nature implies tailoring that knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to adapt the management activities to cope with project constraints. Management and technical activities meet at some points, namely on activities that have technical and management relevance. This paper proposes SPMDSL and presents its language model and the domain analysis made during its development. SPMDSL aims to be a DSL defining a set of representational primitives with which to model projects in the domain of agile software project management. These primitives are represented as classes and their interrelationships. The proposed DSL focuses on agile use case driven software development project management, and so it also integrates concepts from software modeling. The goal is to enable representing past projects’ information to facilitate retrieving information for lessons learned analysis.
