This course is delivered in co-operation with Doulos' training partner Feabhas, who specialise in training courses for real-time embedded developers.
A detailed design course which focuses on designing a Real-Time Embedded System (RTES) using UML 2.0 notation to document the proposed design. This makes it significantly different from most UML courses which focus on UML notation above design principles.
By using comprehensive real-world examples it also identifies the areas where UML 2.0 improves on UML 1.5, but also still identifies its weaknesses (areas such as concurrency, multi-processing and distributed systems). The course is backed up by a comprehensive ‘real-world’ CASE study demonstrating how to apply UML 2.0 to a RTES.
This course has been developed by the leading author Dr. J. E. Cooling.
· To provide an understanding of the design principles of modern real-time software developments methods.
· To show how to develop real-time software in a rigorous and systematic manner.
· To enable attendees to develop their own practical design skills.
· To teach the UML 2.0 design notation for use on RTES.
