Abstract

As the industrial adoption of the UML grows, so also do the issues faced by practitioners of the art of modelling. While the UML does provide a standard mechanism for modelling, it spans a wide gamut of work products produced by means of varied activities within the entire Software Development Life Cycle. However, not all features of the UML apply to all lifecycle “phases”. This paper considers in detail the importance and relevance of various UML-diagrams in corresponding modelling spaces relevant to these different phases. By considering these differences in applicability of the UML diagrams, we propose that these diagrams and the UML overall will become even more relevant in practice.
