Mama (Meta-Automated Modeling Agent) is a domain-specific modeling language for model-driven engineering. Mama provides tools and mechanisms for the definition, creation, manipulation, representation, and transformation of models. The language is often used in combination with other technologies like MetaEdit+ to handle large-scale software systems. By using Mama, developers can create abstract models that represent the structure and behavior of the system being developed before moving on to actual implementation details. This approach reduces errors and inconsistencies by letting engineers focus on higher-level aspects first before diving into code writing.
