Oproep voor UML ontwerpen  


Empanada project


Wij doen onderzoek naar methoden voor het beoordelen van de kwaliteit van architecturen en ontwerp die beschreven zijn mbv de Unified Modelling Language (UML).


Hiervoor zijn we op zoek naar uit de praktijk afkomstige UML beschrijvingen. Bedrijven wordt verzocht UML beschrijvingen hiervoor beschikbaar te stellen. In ruil voor uw bijdrage krijgt u een rapport met een evaluatie van het ontwerp.


UML ontwerpen zullen vertrouwelijk worden behandeld. Analyses kunnen evt. op locatie bij uw bedrijf worden uitgevoerd.

Neem aub contact met mij op als u een UML ontwerp heeft of vragen heeft over ons onderzoek:

Call for UML designs           

Empanada project


We are researching means for assessing the quality of architectures and designs that are described using the Unified Modelling Language (UML).


For this project we are looking for industrial UML designs. Interested parties are invited to make UML designs available for us to analyze. In return, you will receive a report that describes the results of our analysis of your UML design.


Your UML designs will be treated confidentially. It is possible for us to perform the analyses on the premises of your company.


Please contact me if you have a UML design of have any questions about our research.
