Stephen J. Mellor has an internationally recognized track
record in real-time and technical applications development. In 1985, he
published the widely read Ward-Mellor trilogy Structured Development
for Real-Time Systems. In 1988, he published his first book on object-orientation,
Object-Oriented Systems Analysis: Modeling the World in Data. This
book, and its companion Object Lifecycles: Modeling the World in States,
together were the first books to define the concepts of object-oriented
analysis. Mr Mellor has taught and consulted on hundreds of real-world
projects using these methods worldwide.
Mr Mellor has an active role in the Object Management Group
(OMG), the industry consortium that standardized UML. He chaired the consortium
that defined the Precise Action Semantics, which makes the UML
executable. He is currently the Chair of the OMG analysis and design working
group defining the framework for model-driven architecture (MDA).
Steve is Vice-President and founder of Project Technology,
Inc., a company specializing in solutions for model-driven development.
PT has deployed its solutions, based on the concepts of executable and
translatable UML, in over 1400 projects worldwide.
He has just completed his latest book Executable UML:
A Foundation for Model-Driven Architecture with Marc J. Balcer, available
from Addison Wesley in June 2002.
In his copious spare time, he is a member of the IEEE Software
Industrial Advisory Board.
