Modeling and Analysis of Real-Time and Embedded Systems with UML and MARTE is the first book to explain the MARTE standard. Coauthors Bran Selic and Sébastien Gérard lead the efforts to write the standard and distill it in this approachable reference so you can design and develop embedded software to control complex technical systems. The MARTE addendum to the UML standard will help you build real-time and embedded systems for transportation, communication, and industrial control. The functional sophistication required of advanced cyber-physical systems has reached a point where traditional code-centric development methods are proving less and less capable of delivering a reliable product in a timely manner. In Modeling and Analysis of Real-Time and Embedded Systems with UML and MARTE, Selic and Gérard explain how to overcome these limitations by taking advantage of modern model-based engineering methods and corresponding industry standards. These methods rely on the use of high-level models and supporting techniques and technologies, taking full advantage of computer automation to yield higher levels of productivity and product quality. This book includes models that will help you improve communication between stakeholders, increasing the likelihood that the right product will be implemented. You'll also learn how models enable more accurate computer-supported prediction of key system properties early in the development cycle.
