Main Purpose of the Tool

Measufier is a tool for defining and evaluating measures over i* diagrams. Measufier works on an iStarML representation of these diagrams, which facilitates its potential integration with i* modeling tools able to export to this format.

i* framework supported

Yu'95

Availability of the tool

  • (X) For i* modelling only
  • ( ) For development only
  • ( ) Both

Programming Language

Java

Platform Requirements

-

Other technology needed

  • Java Runtime Machine 6.0
  • Tested on Windows 7

Current state of the tool

First prototype available. Tool under improvements.

Ongoing work

We are working on a second prototype that will include more functionalities.

i* Modelling Suitability


1. Does the tool allow SD modelling?

No

2. Does the tool allow SR modelling?

No

3. Does the tool allow working with SD & SR models jointly?

Yes (Only for measuring purposes)

4. Does the tool allow the construction of the models graphically?

No

5. Does the tool allow the construction of the models textually?

No

6. Describe how the elements are modelled and their flexibility (i.e., the elements can be moved and reordered).

Measufier is not a modeling tool but a tool to measure i* models using the iStarML format.
Measufier is not a modeling tool but a tool to measure i* models using the iStarML format.

8. Does the tool allow automatic organization of the elements?

No

9. Other modelling facilities provided by the tool:

Measufier is not a modeling tool but a tool to measure i* models using the iStarML format.

10. Does the tool check SD models?

Yes

11. Does the tool check SR models?

Yes

12. Other checks provided by the tool (i.e., cross validation between SD and SR models).

-

13. Does the tool allow working with two or more models at the same time?
