After introducing general concepts about model transformations, two presentations provide an overview of the MARTE profile. Model-driven implementations of software and hardware architectures are then given, covering the most common aspects of Model-Driven Development for Distributed Real-Time Systems: structuring architectures using components, mapping between different levels of abstraction, designing hardware and software architecture, evaluation and validation through tests and performance analysis.

In the context of Distributed and Real-time Embedded Systems (DRES), system developers are faced with reducing system development cost and time while developing correct (relating to safe and QoS properties) and increasingly complex systems. To take up this challenge, Model-Driven Development (MDD) advocates the intensive uses of models and model transformation on several level of abstractions.

This book includes contributions from academic and professional experts on a range of topics related to MD practices, methods and emerging technologies.
