Model Management and Analytics for Large Scale Systems covers the use of models and related artefacts (such as metamodels and model transformations) as central elements for tackling the complexity of building systems and managing data. With their increased use across diverse settings, the complexity, size, multiplicity and variety of those artefacts has increased. Originally developed for software engineering, these approaches can now be used to simplify the analytics of large-scale models and automate complex data analysis processes. Those in the field of data science will gain novel insights on the topic of model analytics that go beyond both model-based development and data analytics.

This book is aimed at both researchers and practitioners who are interested in model-based development and the analytics of large-scale models, ranging from big data management and analytics, to enterprise domains. The book could also be used in graduate courses on model development, data analytics and data management.

Loek Cleophas

Loek Cleophas is an assistant professor in the Model-Driven Software Engineering (MDSE) section at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and a research fellow at Stellenbosch University, South Africa. He obtained his doctorate in computer science and engineering at TU/e. His work in MDSE has varied from model-driven virtualization of high-tech systems, to generating efficient algorithm toolkits based on algorithm taxonomies. More recent work focuses on analyzing large collections of models and extracting variability and commonality information from them. His research in algorithm engineering and algorithm comparison focuses on pattern matching and finite automata for processing text and tree-shaped data. He worked in industry in the Netherlands and the USA, and at universities in South Africa, Sweden, and Germany, on research funded by various national and international projects as well as by industrial partners. He is also managing director of the Dutch research school on programming and algorithmics (IPA).

Mark van den Brand

Mark van den Brand is a Full Professor Software Engineering and Technology of the section Model Driven Software Engineering, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). He got his PhD from the Radboud University (The Netherlands) in 1992. He worked as assistant professor at the University of Amsterdam after his PhD and moved in 1997 to CWI to work there as senior researcher for almost 10 years. In his Amsterdam period he worked on grammar based technologies to describe the syntax and semantics of programming languages. He was responsible for the redesign of the ASF+SDF Meta-Environment, a language workbench. Using ASF+SDF he worked on developing grammars and transformations for legacy languages. He also worked on the defining the syntax and semantics of domain specific languages. He published papers on both on the technologies developed for the ASF+SDF Meta-Environment as well as papers on applications of ASF+SDF. In this period he initiated the workshop series Language Descriptions, Tools and Applications (LDTA) that later on continued into the international conference on Software Language Engineering (SLE). He served for quite a number of years on the steering committee of SLE. Since 2006, he is a full professor of Software Engineering and Technology in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, and a visiting professor at Royal Holloway, University of London. His current research activities are on generic language technology, model driven engineering, domain specific models, meta-modeling, reverse engineering, and automotive software engineering. His research is industry inspired; he works with most of the high-tech companies in the Eindhoven (The Netherlands) region. He has been an invited lecturer and keynote speaker at various conferences, workshops and doctoral schools. He was and is member of PCs on workshops and conferences related to software engineering, language engineering, rewriting, reverse engineering, and software maintenance. He initiated the special issues of Science of Computer Programming devoted to academic software development (Experimental Software and Toolkits), and since 2007 has been guest editor of six of these. He is on the editorial board of the journals Science of Computer Programming and Open Computer Science. He is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal on Automotive Software Engineering.

Mehmet Aksit

Mehmet Aksit holds an M.Sc. from the Eindhoven University of Technology and a Ph.D. from the University of Twente. He (and his group) have pioneered the following techniques: Programming languages: In 1988, (probably the first) aspect-oriented language called Sina was developed. This work was later evolved into the concept of Composition Filters (1992). Various languages adopted this concept (ComposeJ, Compose*, etc.). From 2010, new language abstractions (Event Composition Modules, the Gummy programming language) were developed to abstract event-based programs. A particular interest was to modularly represent so-called “emergent behaviour”. Software design: In the 90’s, a fuzzy-logic based technique for modelling uncertainty in software design processes was developed. Later, this technique was extended with fuzzy-probabilistic methods and applied to software process- and product-optimization problems. Product-line and/or software architectures/application frameworks: Since 1990’s, various industrial projects have been carried out with companies to design and implement application specific libraries, product-line architectures, application frameworks, domain-specific languages, etc. For example, as 2018, we were told that every lithography machine produced by the company ASML (owns about 70% of the world market) has a subsystem that was originally designed and implement by our research team. Also, new design formalisms were developed to evaluate various software quality attributes. University – Industry cooperation methods: Since 2011, as a team, we have been developing new “university – industry cooperation” methods. Along this line, company maturity models and processes have been defined. This method aims at enhancing the capabilities of high-technology companies so that they can accomplish their strategic objectives in a timely manner.
