Bran Selic, ObjecTime, USA, ``Applying UML to Complex Real-Time Systems''

Complex real-time systems are encountered in diverse domains such as telecommunications, aerospace, or industrial control. They are characterized by highly intricate structure and behavior that are simply a reflection of the complexity of the physical world in which they are embedded. This complexity must be met with a set of modeling concepts that allow direct and intuitive expression of both problems and solutions. In this talk we outline an architectural specification language that provides such modeling concepts. We also describe how these concepts can be expressed using the Unified Modeling Language (UML) which has recently been adopted as a standard for analysis and design of object-oriented software systems.
