Abstract

The Model Driven Architecture (MDA) makes available an open approach to write specifications and develop applications, separating the application and business functionality from the platform technology. As well, the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) establishes a software architectural concept that defines the use of services to support the requirements of software users, making them available as independent services accessible in a standardized way. This paper analyzes how the combination of these two architectures provide a suitable framework to improve construction companies interoperability through the adoption of a standard-based extended environment, and validates its applicability, with two case scenario applications, against the traditional business factors that often hinder e-platforms deployment.
