Defining and validating transformations of uml models
Profiles provide an easy way to obtain well-defined specifications, regulated by the Object Management Group (OMG).
They can be used as a presimulation technique to obtain solid models for the mining industry.
In this context a broad range of IT solutions exist to connect the actual hardware close to the technical and/or logistical process to the application layer of the client driving the installation.
The UML/RDF mapping suggested here is not a special encoding for UML.
A testbed converter that supports automatic translation from UML/XMI to RDFS/RDF/XML is available.
The UML community developed a set of useful models for representing static and dynamic components of software-intensive systems.
The only thing I did was to create a URL for every identifiable UML entity (e.g. UML association ends correspond to RDF properties, the rest is mechanical conversion.
I did this conversion for some important subsets of the UML standard.
The model provides clarity and control over the application and is a time- and money-saving tool for companies racing to deliver extremely reliable products in short timeframes.
