To create computarization target software as a component system has been a very strong requirement for the last 20 years of software developing. Finally, the architectural components are self-contained units, presenting not only partial and overall system behavior, but also cooperating with each other on the basis of their interfaces. Among others, components have allowed flexible modification of processes the behavior of which is the foundation of components behavior without changing the life of the component system. On the other hand, the component system makes it possible, at design time, to create numerous new connections between components and thus creating modified system behaviors. This all enables the company management to perform, at design time, required behavioral changes of processes in accordance with the requirements of changing production and market.
The development of software which is generally referred to as SDP (Software Development Process) contains two directions. The first one, called CBD (Component–Based Development), is dedicated to the development of component–based systems CBS (Component–based System), the second target is the development of software under the influence of SOA (Service–Oriented Architecture). Both directions are equipped with their different development methodologies. The subject of this paper is only the first direction and application of development of component–based systems in its object–oriented methodologies. The requirement of today is to carry out the development of component-based systems in the framework of developed object–oriented methodologies precisely in the way of a dominant style. In some of the known methodologies, however, this development is not completely transparent and is not even recognized as dominant. In some cases, it is corrected by the special meta–integration models of component system development into an object methodology.
This paper presents a case study applied to the process management fragment of a human resources HR (Human Resources) domain in a small manufacturing business enterprise, which confirms the success of the meta-model implementation mentioned in the contribution (Mišovič, Faldík, 2013).
