WORLDCOMP'11 Tutorial: Dr. Shivanand M. Handigund

Last modified 2011-06-14 06:38

Unraveling the Hidden Treasures of Research Avenues in Object-Oriented Technology
Prof. Shivanand M. Handigund
Bangalore Institute of Technology, Bangalore, India

Date: July 20, 2011
Time: 6:00-9:00 PM
Location: Copper Room


    Any software development commences with the software requirements specification (SRS) of the client organization. This is included in the project charter that binds the developer and the client organization. In the analysis phase, the developer abstracts various view elements required for the design and then organizes them with concrete semiotics into design diagrams. Presently, the Unified Modeling Language (UML) is used as a technique to design the object-oriented information system in 5 views & 13 types of diagrams. But the lack of correct & complete automated methodologies for the abstraction of view elements, scupper the very elegancy of UML. The SRS incorporate the end users requirement for the system. The flexibility of use of English words and the cultural & social background influence the end users reflect through the presence of synonyms and or homonyms words in the SRS. The presence of these words create incompleteness and redundancy problems. Though UML diagrams have the elegancy of their semiotic, the afore said lacunae deprive the developers from the use of such elegancy. As a result the success rate of object-oriented software development projects is reduced to pathetic 19%. The tutorial alerts the audience with insight to develop the correct & complete automatic methodologies to abstract all required view elements from the SRS and to resolve the synonyms & homonyms issues. Then unveils, how from the subset of these view elements, ensuites of UML diagrams are designed and harnessed with refinement techniques that incorporate the good software Engineering and good database design principles. Then the tutorial reveals how with slight modifications in the definitions of model elements and the purposes of UML diagrams, how more meaningful information can be derived. Even after the design, it reveals how the authentication of the correctness & completeness of other model elements is made with the interleaving use of sequence of subsets of various UML diagrams.

    In this tutorial the author also wish address the research issues for the design of various UML diagrams (13 in numbers) through automated methodologies so that arbitrary use of human skill is minimized.


    To emphasize the learned audience about
      • How the art of abstracting view elements from SRS, refining the definitions and purposes of UML diagrams can be transformed to an engineering methodology with semiotic of the designers.
      • How to strengthen the foundation of Object-oriented Technology to enunciate the naturalism of Object-oriented technology.
      • Automate the process of forming en suites of combinations of design diagrams for higher level concepts of Information system.
      • Develop automated methodologies for the analysis of Software Requirements Specification (SRS) and design of various UML diagrams.
      • How clusters of use cases can be formed and authenticated through the interleaving use of different UML diagrams.
