Abstract Solutions provides a variety of services to accelerate and de-risk the adoption of Model Driven Architecture and UML modelling.
Our tool agnostic courses focus on process and modelling strategies, as our experience shows that these are key to project success. However, for those who have selected a tool and wish to combine tool training with methodology training, we are of course happy to help. Our courses have been honed over many years and provide delegates with the opportunity to reinforce their understanding using real world case studies drawn from their application area. The courses are continually updated to reflect customer feedback. In addition, as IBM Business Partners we can provide official IBM product training at competitive prices.
Our solution is backed up by a highly skilled team of consultants, with an average of 20 years practical experience of model driven development. They provide a comprehensive skills transfer capability, delivering training courses and consulting services to help our customers realise the full benefits of our approach.
Model Based Systems Engineering
Model Based Systems Engineering applies the rigour and abstractions provided by modelling techniques to the whole systems development process.
Model Based Systems Engineering applies the rigour and abstractions provided by modelling techniques to the whole systems development process, encompassing requirements elicitation & management, use case modelling and system structural & behavioural modelling. The models form a coherent description of the system and its components (whether software or hardware) and flow seamlessly into implementation phases such as MDD for software.
Model Driven Development
How to adopt and exploit the benefits of Model Driven Development (MDD).
One key common differentiator between successful and failed MDD implementations is not the specific tool acquired but instead the adoption requirements for process definition and implementation.
Executable UML (xUML) is a precise subset of UML that allows modelling of systems ranging from simple to enormously complex. It is based upon a carefully selected set of UML modelling constructs, organised in a simple and coherent way. Because xUML is precise, the models can be tested as they are built, and automatically translated into industry quality target code.
Generic Vehicle Architecture
Abstract Solutions were selected by the UK MoD to define and assist in the deployment of the modelling process and strategy used for their Generic Vehicle Architecture (GVA) Model.
