Ensuring the long-term maintainability and readability of software models.
Berlin-based software company Model Engineering Solutions GmbH (MES) is introducing a new training class to its training program in 2019: Taming the Beast – How to Manage Large Software Models. Via practical exercises and theoretical explanations, participants will learn how to handle large software models, an area that is particularly important when developing safety-relevant software in line with ISO 26262, the automotive industry standard.

Why large models need to be tamed
Models are the core artifacts in automotive software development. Over time – within a single development project or even across multiple evolution steps – models grow as they capture more and more functionality. As a result, models become hard to maintain, rarely understandable, and the risk of errors due to unexpected behavior increases. The technical debt of the model demands proper countermeasures. This training class addresses deficits caused by large models and shows ways to overcome their risks. Participants will learn about the foundations of software architectures, how design principles in models are assessed, and how model size can be reduced. As part of this, software model refactoring will be introduced and applied. Beyond this, participants will also learn about layered application architectures and representing architectures in models.
