Unified Modeling Language

(UML) A non-proprietary, third generation modelling language. The Unified Modeling Language is an open method used to specify, visualise, construct and document the artifacts of an object-oriented software-intensive system under development. The UML represents a compilation of "best engineering practices" which have proven successful in modelling large, complex systems.

UML succeeds the concepts of Booch, OMT and OOSE by fusing them into a single, common and widely usable modelling language. UML aims to be a standard modelling language which can model concurrent and distributed systems.

UML is not an industry standard, but is taking shape under the auspices of the Object Management Group (OMG). OMG has called for information on object-oriented methodologies, that might create a rigorous software modelling language. Many industry leaders have responded in earnest to help create the standard.

The most popular modeling tools are Petri Nets (PN) (Dicesare et al., 1993; MengChu Zhou & Zurawski R., 1995) and Unified Modeling Language (UML) (Booch et al., 1999).
Additionally, it introduces the LabVIEW Statechart Module for higher-level designs to run on targets including FPGAs, real-time systems, PDAs, touch panels and a variety of microprocessors, via add-on functionality giving engineers an alternative to designing systems with a high-level diagram based on the Unified Modeling Language (UML) standard.
New features include automatic generation of logic and code, such as analog and digital measurements with direct memory access using a configuration-based FPGA project wizard; high-level design using a statechart approach based on the Unified Modeling Language specification with the Statechart Module; new intellectual property for multichannel operations including PID control for more efficient FPGA gate usage; and simulation of FPGA functions on windows before compiling for FPGA targets to speed design.
