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 inproducing 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?
Michel Chaudron is Professor at the Dept of Computer Science and Engineering (joint between Chalmers and Gotenborg Univ) in Sweden.His research interests are in: software architecture, software design, software modeling, software composition and empirical studies in software engineering.
