Information extraction from high-level activity diagrams to support development tasks

Beckmann, Martin ; Karbe, Thomas ; Vogelsang, Andreas (2018)

As the complexity of systems continues to increase, the use of model-driven development approaches becomes more widely applied. One of our industry partners (Daimler AG) uses UML activity diagrams as the first step in the development of vehicle functions, mainly for the purpose of communication and overview. However, the contained information is also valuable for further development tasks. In t...

Evaluation of a specification approach for vehicle functions using activity diagrams in requirements documents

Beckmann, Martin ; Vogelsang, Andreas (2017)

Rising complexity of systems has long been a major challenge in requirements engineering. This manifests in more extensive and harder to understand requirements documents. At the Daimler AG, an approach is applied that combines the use of activity diagrams with natural language specifications to specify vehicle functions. The approach starts with an activity diagram that is created to get an ea...

What is a good textual representation of activity diagrams in requirements documents?

Beckmann, Martin ; Vogelsang, Andreas (2017)

The use of graphical models has become a widely adopted approach to specify requirements of complex systems. Still, in practice, graphical models are often accompanied by textual descriptions to provide more detail, because of legal considerations, and to enable stakeholders with different backgrounds to understand a requirements document. One of our industry partners (Daimler AG) uses activity...

Removal of redundant elements within UML activity diagrams

Beckmann, Martin ; Michalke, Vanessa N. ; Vogelsang, Andreas ; Schlutter, Aaron (2017)

As the complexity of systems continues to rise, the use of model-driven development approaches becomes more widely applied. Still, many created models are mainly used for documentation. As such, they are not designed to be used in following stages of development, but merely as a means of improved overview and communication. In an effort to use existing UML2 activity diagrams of an industry part...

Coexisting graphical and structured textual representations of requirements

Beckmann, Martin ; Reuter, Christian ; Vogelsang, Andreas (2018)

[Context & motivation] Many requirements documents contain graphical and textual representations of requirements side-byside. These representations may be complementary but oftentimes they are strongly related or even express the same content. [Question/problem] Since both representation may be used on their own, we want to nd out why and how a combination of them is used in practice. In conseq...

A case study on a specification approach using activity diagrams in requirements documents

Beckmann, Martin ; Vogelsang, Andreas ; Reuter, Christian (2017)

Rising complexity of systems has long been a major challenge in requirements engineering. This manifests in more extensive and harder to understand requirements documents. At the Daimler AG, an approach is applied that combines the use of activity diagrams with natural language specifications to specify system functions.
