We teach Executable UML Modeling. We teach engineers and computer scientists, but we also teach managers, accountants, teachers and even nurses. In fact, it was a high school aged nurse-to-be that modeled the blood pressure cuff shown above on paper. The next day in class we entered the model into BridgePoint as shown below.
It is really fun to see someone grasp the concept of abstraction. Some people have knack for it and quickly learn to capture and communicate ideas with models. The nurse who built this model really disliked computer science and was mildly annoyed that she was so good at modeling!
Notice the “Class Blitz” list in upper left corner (to assist in her brain-storming)…
Look for another “model snippet of the day” like this in future posts.
