PrIMe: A Methodology for Developing Provenance-Aware Applications

Munroe, S., Miles, S., Groth, P., Jiang, S., Tan, V., Moreau, L., Ibbotson, J. and Vazquez-Salceda, J. (2006) PrIMe: A Methodology for Developing Provenance-Aware Applications s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


PrIMe is a methodology for adapting applications to make them provenance-aware, that is to enable them to document their execution in order to answer provenance questions. A provenance-aware application can satisfy provenance use cases, where a use case is a description of a scenario in which a user interacts with a system by performing particular functions on that system, and a provenance use case requires documentation of past processes in order to achieve the functions. In this report the PrIMe is described. In order to illustrate the steps necessary to make an application provenance aware, an Organ Transplant Management example application is used.
