Internship Proposal: Designing of a domain-specific modeling tool for Business Continuity Management within health-related crisisWednesday 06 March 2019
Context: nowadays health care organizations recognize the benefits of new Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the delivery of health care services. While these modern technologies have enhanced practices in the health care sector, the potential of failures interrupting business operation need to be prevented. This system downtime risk may induce significant impacts on patient safety and on the ability to deliver high-quality care services. In this context, Business Continuity Management (BCM) seems to be an appropriate approach to ensure the ability to operate in spite of unforeseen events and to quickly recover from any type of business interruption.
Objectives: within this project we want to design and develop a modeling tool which is able to create domain-specific models for BCM including algorithms and mechanisms, enabling validation and simulation of BCM models. The targeted application field is primarily the health care sector, more specifically the e-health domain.
Duration: 3 to 5 months
Starting: 15th of April, 2019
Required background: Algorithmic, Object-Oriented Programming, Unified Modeling Language (UML). Knowledge in one of the following topics would be highly appreciated: Model driven architecture, Business continuity management, Risk management, e-health. In addition, good English reading and writing skills are required.
Applications should include the following:
