- A Process provider is a plugin that reads a process model and maps its information onto the PET meta model. E.g. the V-Modell XT process provider loads a tailored V-Modell XT project file.
- A Tool provider is a plugin that uses the previously initialized meta model to create data needed by a certain external tool. E.g. the TFS tool provider generates a process template for Microsoft’s Team Foundation Server.
