Software developers use different techniques for identification and specification of a domain's characteristics and requirements for a planned application. The importance of this step cannot be understated as it is impossible to be highly efficient with a weak beginning, even with a strong end of the software development life cycle. Model-Driven Domain Analysis and Software Development: Architectures and Functions displays how to effectively map and respond to the real-world challenges and purposes which software must solve. The implications can be far-reaching and apply to domains such as mechatronic, embedded and high risk systems, where failure could cost human lives. It is also important for complex business systems, wherein failures could lead to huge financial losses. This book forms an essential reference for developers and researchers by providing both cases and theories to ensure a strong and suitable domain analysis to support all other efforts when creating and applying software solutions.
