Abstract

This position paper argues that a successful COTS evaluation process should be based on the principles of method  engineering (ME). Following a brief description of an ME approach underpinned by a metamodel, some method fragments related to component-based software engineering are offered as the starting point for the creation of a complete suite of method fragments for future COTS evaluation processes.
