Abstract:


Current architectures for systems integration provide means for forming agile business processes by manually or dynamically configuring the components.However, a major challenge in the safety-critical Air Traffic Management (ATM) domain is to interconnect business services taking into account service level agreements regarding the underlying network infrastructures. In such domains, manual configuration is forbidden due to the resulting error-prone and time-consuming tasks, while dynamic configuration is not allowed due to nondeterministic decision making. In this paper we propose a model-driven system configuration approach (MDSC),which explicitly models the components of the network infrastructures and their capabilities to automatically generate a logical network configuration. Based on an industry application example, we show the feasibility of the proposed integration platform in the ATM domain and discuss the advantages and limitations.
