Examination achievement PL1

  • Form of examination: written exam (Klausur) (60-90 Min.)
  • Examination Frequency: each summer semester
  • Examination number: 60202 ("Modelling of Software Systems")

Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


Students learn basic modeling techniques about the software life cycle. The focus is on engineering techniques, such as UML modeling for object-oriented procedures and functionally decomposing models in analysis and design.
  • UML modeling in analysis and design (class and object diagrams, communication and sequence diagrams and others)
  • Functional decomposing models (Structured Analysis, Real Time Analysis, Structured Design)
  • Modeling of non-functional properties
  • Virtualization on the basis of models
  • Traditional process models of software development (waterfall, V-model, prototypes, evolutionary, incremental and concurrent models)
  • Project management models (network plan, Gantt chart, effort calculations)
  • Models in quality assurance (especially model-based testing)

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of the module, students will be able to
  • illustrate and visualize facts in suitable models,
  • check existing models and assess their consistency with underlying facts,
  • transfer content between different models (e.g. from UML models of the analysis to UML models of the design).
