According to Booch, Rumbaugh, and Jacobson (2005), developing a model for an industrial strength software system before its construction is increasingly regarded as a necessary activity in information systems development. The use of object-oriented modeling in analysis and design started to become popular in the late 80s, producing a large number of different languages and approaches. Over the last 10 years, UML (OMG, 2006a) has taken a leading position in this area. In this chapter, we give an overview assessment of UML using a generic evaluation framework. We will first present the evaluation framework. We will then evaluate the language quality of UML before pointing to the future direction and potential of UML.
