Real Time UML Workshop for Embedded Systems (Embedded Technology)by Bruce Powel Douglass
Synopses & Reviews
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 author’s 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.
*Tutorial style text with keen focus on in-depth presentation and solution of real-world example problems
*Highly popular, respected and experienced author
*CD includes test version of the popular Rhapsody tool, allowing engineers to capture and work out the exercises in the book
"The accompanying CD-ROM contains a demo version of the Rhapsody UML tool and models of the solutions"--P.  of cover.
This practical new book aims to improve the reader's understanding of real-time concepts with UML, and how to apply them in real-world design situations. In order to accomplish that goal, 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 it's 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. It covers all the various process areas, including capturing requirements, system analysis and architecture, object analysis, architectural design, mechanistic design, and detailed design.
