Title: Is Modeling Any Good?  Empirical Evidence on Modeling in Software Development


Modeling is a common part of modern day software engineering practice.
Little evidence is known about how models are made and how they help in
producing better software. In this talk I will present highlight 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?

How do engineers look at UML models? Do UML models actually help in creating better software?
