"As you might expect, there are plenty of UML diagrams. Real-time UML specifications are used throughout, consistent with the purpose of the book. Designers with UML expertise who want to understand how to address real-time applications will find this book useful, as will those in the real-time world who need to understand how to bring UML to bear on the design problem." - William Wong, Electronic Design
Go straight to the source and ensure design success with this hands-on workshop from the best-selling embedded UML guru.
This practical new book provides much-needed, practical, hands-on experience capturing analysis and design in UML. It holds the hands of engineers making the difficult leap from developing in C to the higher-level and more robust Unified Modeling Language, thereby supporting professional development for engineers looking to broaden their skill-sets in order to become more saleable in the job market.
It provides a laboratory environment through a series of progressively more complex exercises that act as building blocks, illustrating the various aspects of UML and its application to real-time and embedded systems. With its focus on gaining proficiency, it goes a significant step beyond basic UML overviews, providing both comprehensive methodology and the best level of supporting exercises available on the market. Each exercise has a matching solution which is thoroughly explained step-by-step in the back of the book. The techniques used to solve these problems come from the authors decades of experience designing and constructing real-time systems. After the exercises have been successfully completed, the book will act as a desk reference for engineers, reminding them of how many of the problems they face in their designs can be solved.
