The use of formal models such as Role Activity Diagrams (RADs) for analysing a process often hide what really happens during that process. In this paper, we build on previous research on informal aspects of the prototyping process and look at the key concerns that prototypers had during the...

A key problem in the development of information systems is understanding features of the development process. To this end, in recent years, considerable interest has been focused on modelling processes. In this paper, the results of an empirical investigation into the use of prototyping in...

By providing a route from model to architecture, Model Driven Architecture (MDA) promises, among other things, to narrow the gap between business users and software developers. That is, the approach is intended to involve stakeholders in modelling, so that, by transformation from Computationally...
