How can you upgrade your collaboration level inside an online modeling tool?

The problem with older modeling softwares is clearly the collaboration. Everyone has his license installed on his workstation and produces versions of the same project. These versions are then exchanged in email format. The risk of error is then very high. Is it all about the right version? Did my colleague change the correct version? […]

Why should you consider a versioning system for your UML projects?

In general, the benefits of using a versioning system are more relevant when you are a team. In fact, versioning increases the potential for simultaneous works and improves version tracking and synchronization over time. Also, you can easily manage the versions history. You can forget the multiple files stored in different places, named “final version […]

How UML 2.5 standard helps you to structure your complex software systems?

Unified Language Modeling (UML) first appeared in the 1990s as an effort to select the best elements of the many modeling systems offered at the time, and combine them into a single consistent notation. It has since become the standard for modeling and design software, as well as for modeling other processes in the scientific and commercial worlds of industry. GenMyModel supports the latest UML 2.5 standard, as defined by the OMG (Object Management Group). It gives you access to many types of diagrams, on an online tool helping you communicate and share your models more effectively with Google Doc style collaboration.

What you need to know about UML diagrams – Behaviour diagrams (2)

We continue our serie of blog posts about the most used UML diagrams. The Unified Modeling Language™ (UML‧Ⓡ) is a way of describing software architecture using a range of diagrams. UML have been created to put different profiles around the table, and speak the same language : business analysts, software architects and developers. This modeling language, as a standard language, can be applied to any sectors (banking, internet, aerospace, finance etc.), be used with major software development methods and for several implementation platforms. We can identify two main types of diagrams :

  • structure diagrams to show the static structure of a system including abstraction, real word, implementation, and how they are related to each other.
  • behaviour diagrams to show the dynamic behaviour of the objects in a system, a serie of changes to the system over time.
