Metamodeling in EIA/CDIF - Meta-Metamodel and Metamodels

Publication: Scientific journalJournal articlepeer-review


This article introduces the EIA/CDIF set of standards for the modeling of information systems and its exchange among computer-aided software tools of different vendors. It lays out the meta-metamodel and the standardized metamodels which are fully depicted in a hierarchical layout and annotated with the unique identifiers of all the standardized modeling concepts. The article also stresses the fact that EIA/CDIF has been used as the baseline in the creation of an international standard, the ISO/CDIF set of models, an ongoing project.
