On the Impact of Diagram Layout: How Are Models Actually Read?

Harald Störrle, Nick Baltsen, Henrik Christoffersen, Anja M. Maier
2014 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems  
This poster presents the latest results from a very large eye tracking study (n=29) that explores how modelers read UML diagrams.  ...  We find that various factors like layout quality, modeler experience, and diagram type lead to significant differences in diagram reading strategies.  ...  Summary and Future Work We replicate earlier experiments on the impact of layout quality (and other factors) on UML diagram understanding by using eye tracking instead of subjective assessment.  ...

On the impact of size to the understanding of UML diagrams

Harald Störrle
2016 Journal of Software and Systems Modeling  
On the impact of size to the understanding of UML diagrams. Software and Systems Modeling.  ...  Conclusions: The effect sizes are varying, but generally suggest that the impact of size matches or exceeds that of other factors in diagram understanding.  ...  Also, in the experience of the author, there are actually many people that do not find layout quality obviously relevant.  ...

Diagram Size vs. Layout Flaws

Harald Storrle
2016 Proceedings of the 10th ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement - ESEM '16  
Both metrics are shown to be objectively applicable. We quantify the impact of diagram size and quality on diagram understanding.  ...  CONTEXT: Previously, we have defined the notion of diagram size and studied its impact on the understanding of UML diagrams.  ...  • RQ 3: What is the impact of diagram quality on model understanding, as compared to diagram size?  ...

Increased Reliability with SSPiRAL Data Layouts

Ahmed Amer, Darrell D. E. Long, Thomas Schwarz, Jehan-Francois Paris
2008 2008 IEEE International Symposium on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Computers and Telecommunication Systems  
Through a novel dynamic analysis of the likelihood of data losses, we show that these schemes are one hundred thousand to a million times less likely to lose data than a comparable mirrored organization  ...  These schemes are instances of Survivable Storage using Parity in Redundant Array Layouts (SSPiRAL). They have the same storage costs as mirrored organizations and use very simple parity schemes.  ...  DE-FC02-06ER25768 and by the sponsors of the Storage Systems Research Center.  ...
