Abstract

The aim of this paper is to describe how the Unified Modelling Language (UML) is used to build knowledge management and decision support tools. This attempt is part of a research project being sponsored by British Telecommunications. This paper defines the process of dynamic role allocation, explains the need for monitoring this process in software engineering teams, and justifies its importance to industry. It also outlines the factors affecting the dynamic role allocation in software engineering teams, and identifies the requirements for a system supporting the overall process. Furthermore, it presents the key concepts and design issues that lead in following an Object Oriented approach and using UML, and it describes the implementation and evaluation of such a prototype. Finally it discusses the issues rising from using UML in this specific domain, and especially for modelling notions such as cultural differences, personality characteristics, and individual preferences.
