Modeling Community: Why Model?

Why isn't modelling common place?. In this post I identify five main reasons we need to address to make modeling mainstream.

Smart bounded verification for UML / OCL models

Correctness of UML diagrams annotated with OCL constraints can be checked using bounded verification. We show an automatic technique to choose the best bound
