Method engineering provides an excellent base for constructing situation-specific software engineering methodologies for both object (OO) and agent (AO) software development. Both the OPEN Process Framework (OPF) and the Framework for Agent-oriented Method Engineering (FAME) use an existing repository coupled to an appropriate metamodel (which in the near future will be the new ISO standard metamodel ISO/IEC 24744, itself based on the concept of powertypes). This flexible, yet standardized, repository supplies method fragments that are then configured to support specific projects. In addition, all existing, and new, OO and AO methodologies can be recreated, thus providing an industry strength resource for object-oriented and agent-oriented software development.
