Institutskolloquium of Prof. Dr. Matthias Tichy on March 23th 2016, 1.p.m.
Prof. Dr. Matthias Tichy talks about "Modeling vs./and Reality"
Modeling aims at improving the effectiveness of engineering by using models as important artifacts in the development process. For example, modeling enables early verification and validation activities, supports generation of lower-level artifacts, e.g. source code, and can be used to communication with other stakeholders. The goal is to empirically investigate how modeling is, can or should be used in individual practice.
Prof. Dr. Matthias Tichy presents in his invited talk several related research studies on modeling in practice. A first study answers how much and with what kind of effects modeling is used in the industrial practice of embedded system development. The second study compares in an experiment the comprehensibility of a state-based modeling language with a scenario-based language based on a industrial automotive system specification. Finally Prof. Dr. Matthias Tichy presents an approach to predict the effort of introducing new versions of AUTOSAR, an architectural description language, in automotive companies.
