One of the things — the important aspects of this race — is role modeling what good families should look like. Our view was that, if you can't run your own house, you certainly can't run the White House.
If the truth were a palpable object, it would be a modeling clay.André Dahmer, in the Brazilian webcomic Malvados
Visual modeling is a usage of images in various business-fields (in the industry, science, management etc.). There are additional limitations on these images distinguishing them from arbitrary pictures - they are created from the standard “patterns” having defined semantics and way of usage.Dmitrij V. Koznov (2002) "Visual Modeling and Software Project Management"
I get a kick out of it, but it would be stupid to let it go to my head. It’s modeling I didn’t find the cure for cancer.marisa miller
The second problem [with using UML for the purposes of this book] is that the Unified modeling Language concentrates on implementation modeling rather than conceptual modeling.Martin Fowler (1997) Analysis Patterns: Reusable Object Models p. 314
The key books about object-oriented graphical modeling languages appeared between 1988 and 1992. Leading figures included Grady Booch [Booch,OOAD]; Peter Coad [Coad, OOA], [Coad, OOD]; Ivar Jacobson (Objectory) [Jacobson, OOSE]; Jim Odell [Odell]; Jim Rumbaugh (OMT) [Rumbaugh, insights], [Rumbaugh, OMT]; Sally Shlaer and Steve Mellor [Shlaer and Mellor, data], [Shlaer and Mellor, states]:;; and Rebecca Wirfs-Brock (Responsibility Driven Design) [Wirfs-Brock].Martin Fowler (2004) A Brief Guide to the Standard Object Modeling Language. p.7
In all engineering disciplines nowadays, software engineering excluded, there exists an established engineering process to develop a system, which is accompanied by a number of suited modeling description techniques. Software engineering, being a rather new field, has not as yet established any clear methodical guidance or a fully standardized modeling notation.Bernhard Rumpe (2002). "Executable Modeling with UML. A vision or a Nightmare." Issues & Trends of Information Technology Management in Contemporary Associations. p. 697
Archetypes, color, and components will forever change how you build Java models. We build Java models with teams of developers. In our day-to-day mentoring, we develop and try out new ideas and innovations that will help those developers excel at modeling.Peter Coad, Jeff de Luca, and Eric Lefebvre. (1999) Java Modeling Color with Uml: Enterprise Components and Process with Cdrom. Prentice Hall PTR.
We have no idea about the 'real' nature of things ... The function of modeling is to arrive at descriptions which are useful .Richard Bandler and John Grinder. (1979) Frogs into Princes: Neuro Linguistic Programming. Moab, UT: Real People Press. p.7.
