ModelWare is a technology space to design, maintain and reuse software development models.

ModelWare is a synonym for model based technology.

One observation:

The lack of grounded theories relating to models (ModelWare) is obvious, which can be seen in the road map for object-oriented models (Engels and Groenewegen, 2000). Hence, the current modeling practice, UML, doesn’t have a grounded theoretical foundation,  although it is still widely used in software development world-wide.
