    Software development time depends on various attributes of the software product. In this paper, attempt has been made to define an empirical relation between software development time with respect to its dependence on lines of code, variables and methods. We have attempted to analyze the various...

    The main purpose of this paper is to approach the use of formal methods in computing. In more specific terms, we use a temporal logic to formalize the most fundamental aspects of the semantics of UML state machines. We pay special attention to the dynamic aspects of the different operations...

    Two basic requirements from a system's conceptual model are correctness and comprehensibility. Most modeling methodologies satisfy only one of these apparently contradicting requirements, usually comprehensibility, leaving aside problems of correctness and ambiguousness that are associated with...

  • UML for ABM. Bersin, Hugues // Journal of Artificial Societies & Social Simulation;Jan2012, Vol. 15 Issue 1, p17 

    Although the majority of researchers interested in ABM increasingly agree that the most natural way to program their models is to adopt OO practices, UML diagrams are still largely absent from their publications. In the last 15 years, the use of UML has risen constantly, to the point where UML...

    The paper presents STAIRS [1], an approach to the compositional development of UML interactions supporting the specification of mandatory as well as potential behavior. STAIRS has been designed to facilitate the use of interactions for requirement capture as well as test specification. STAIRS...

    In this paper we propose a process for generating formal object-oriented specifications in OCL and class diagrams from the use case model of a system through a clearly defined sequence of model transformations. The algebraic invariant of business values exchanged in a use case guides the design...
