PragmaDev to Present the Results of Its 2012 On-Line Survey on Software Modeling Technologies and Their Usage

Share Article

The survey confirmed last year results showing that UML is mainly used for documentation, Matlab/Simulink for simulation, and SDL for code generation. While MARTE and TTCN-3 are raising a lot of interest, LUSTRE and SystemC are substantially decreasing.

The top three modeling technologies are UML, SDL, and Matlab. Even though UML is the first modeling technology to be quoted, it is also interesting to state a strong interest for ASN.1 to model data. Out of the 13 diagrams in UML the top 3 are: the Class diagram, the Sequence diagram, and the Use case diagram.

We asked which technology will most likely be used in the coming year and that gives an idea of the current trends on the modeling market. The key trends are:

  • MARTE, TTCN-3, Modelica, SysML and AADL are still generating a lot of interest probably because all these technologies are quite recent,
  • SDL, UML, VHDL, and ASN.1 are slightly decreasing probably because these are mature technologies,
  • SART, LUSTRE, and SystemC are substantially decreasing.
