Abstract : This guidebook describes the Organization Domain Modeling (ODM) domain engineering method. ODM has been developed by Mark Simos of Organon Motives to systematize key aspects of the domain modeling process and provide an overall framework for a domain engineering life cycle. ODM is intended as a highly tailorable and configurable domain engineering process model, useful for diverse organizations and domains, and amenable to integration with a variety of software engineering processes, methods, and implementation technologies. In addition to focusing on the strictly technical aspects of domain engineering, the method emphasizes the importance of clearly defining the organization context within which each domain engineering effort is conducted. The primary purposes of the guidebook are to: Provide a definitive ODM reference document which promotes public understanding of the method and its applicability through in-depth descriptions of ODM concepts, processes, and workproducts. Provide substantial practical guidance for using the method by describing ODM activities in detail and offering workproduct templates and examples to get practitioners started. Provide general guidance in tailoring the method for application within a particular project or organization.
