OMG Model Driven Architecture Drives F16 Development

Lockheed Martin Aeronautics at Fort Worth used the OMG's Model Driven Architecture to develop the F-16 Modular Mission Computer (MMC) Application Software. Their goal was to achieve cross-platform compatibility and increased productivity and quality. Cost reduction was estimated at 20%. The more interesting aspect of this project is that application models in UML are the primary source. Code is not maintained and is autogenerated for each specific piece of hardware/software implementation.

The OMG Model Driven Architecture is the next generation of the Business Object Architecture effort which I described in my ACM StandardsView paper, "Why I Love the OMG: Emergence of a Business Object Component Architecture."
