MetaBuilder is an Architecture Management tool (software) developed as an integral part of the delivery mechanism for DISCON Specialists internationally acclaimed Business Engineering Methodology. The software is scalable to be used by corporate companies as well as private individuals in any industry type. The tool has a graphical interface that enables the creation, updating and publishing of models such as strategy, capability, value chain, operating model, organisation structure, processes, information, technology deployment and much more. MetaBuilder through its embedded rules-based Metamodel, ensures the accurate delivery of all aspects of the methodology.  

Graphical modelling is enabled by shapes and connectors which represent predefined classes in the database.  The shapes are presented in subject grouped stencil sets which can be dragged and dropped onto a canvas to construct the required model.  The allowed relationships between shapes, represented in a model by connectors, are controlled by rules encapsulated within the Metamodel.

The set of modelling stencils provides the user with the ability to model all aspects of an organisation within the scope of the DISCON Methodology.  The delivery of all the required elements of Architecture ensure “Control over Architecture”.
