Model-based development: Theory and practice (MBD-TP)
The aim of this course is to provide participants with the principles behind model-driven development of software systems and the application of such a methodology in practice. Modelling is an effective solution to reduce problem complexity and, as a consequence, to enhance time-to-market and properties of the final product.
About the course
The course includes three modules:
Basic concepts of modelling; what are models, metamodels, model transformations, modelling languages.
Model-Driven Engineering in practice; domain-specific languages, UML profiles, design, analysis, and implementation of software systems through model-driven techniques.
Practical problems in modelling usage; evolution management, tool chaining.
You will learn to
- Understand the general principles underlying Model-Driven Engineering techniques
- Analyse the contextual success factors and pitfalls for the adoption of Model-Driven software development in their own organisation
- Analyse potential issues related to tool compatibility, needs for modelling language extensions/customisations, support for distributed development.
Related industrial challenges addressed in the course
