Are Forward Designed or Reverse-Engineered UML diagrams more helpful for code maintenance?: A family of experiments

Ana M. Fernández-Sáez, Marcela Genero, Michel R.V. Chaudron, Danilo Caivano, Isabel Ramos
2015 Information and Software Technology  
The analysis of the qualitative data, collected using a post-experiment survey, reveals that the subjects did not consider RE diagrams helpful.  ...  Subjective opinions also lead us to recommend the use of UML diagrams (especially class diagrams) created during the design phase for software maintenance because they improve the understanding of the  ...  The authors would like to thank the students who have cooperated in the experiments.  ...

Workshop on graphical documentation for programmers: assessing the efficacy of UML diagrams for program understanding

Shihong Huang, S. Tilley
MHS2003. Proceedings of 2003 International Symposium on Micromechatronics and Human Science (IEEE Cat. No.03TH8717)  
This workshop (the fourth in a series on graphical documentation for programmers) focuses on discussing techniques for the efficacy of UML diagrams in aid of program understanding.  ...  However, it is an open question exactly which types of graphical documentation are most suitable for which types of program understanding tasks (and in which specific usage contexts).  ...  The goal is to assess the qualitative efficacy of UML diagrams in aiding program understanding.  ...
