Abbreviation: UML
Definition: UML is a standardised general-purpose modeling language, created and maintained by the Object Management Group. UML is used to specify, visualise, modify, construct and document the artifacts of an object-oriented software-intensive system under development. UML includes a set of graphic notation techniques to create visual models, including:

  • Structure diagrams (e.g. class, component, deployment, package and profile diagrams)
  • Behaviour diagrams (e.g. activity, UML state machine and use case diagrams)
  • Interaction diagrams (e.g. communication, interaction overview, sequence and timing diagrams)

In the context of CIMI, the phrase ‘UML model’ will most commonly refer to a UML class diagram.
