May 28, 2013Is Modeling Any Good? Empirical Evidence on Modeling in Software Development
Room: Hal B 2FProf. dr. Michel Chaudron
12:30-13:30

 

Modeling is a common part of modern day software engineering practice.
Little evidence is known about how models are used and how they help in producing better software.
In this talk I will present highlights from the last decade of research in the area of software modeling using UML.
Topics that will be addressed: What is the state of UML modeling in practice? How can we assess the quality of UML models?
Do UML models actually help in creating better software?
