Lessons for software modeling from “Architecture 101” movie

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlespeer-review


In software modeling, it is difficult to properly arrange the modeling of system structure and behavior as the traversal between software models usually lacks a clear progression path. Taking an inter-disciplinary approach, this paper tackles the problem by borrowing ideas from a successful movie “Architecture 101”. The commonalities between the movie and modeling are studied. The result is a proposal for multi-modeling construction. The benefits include more explicit guidance in software development. And the progression from model to code is made more productive.
