In an ongoing effort to reduce development costs in spite of increasing system complexity, Motorola has been a long-time adopter of Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) practices. The foundation of this approach is the creation of rigorous models throughout the development process, thereby enabling the introduction of automation. In this paper we present our experiences within Motorola in deploying a top-down approach to MDE for more than 15 years. We describe some of the key competencies that have

Experience Motorola's experience in MDE crosses a wide spectrum of activities, tools, and modeling languages in the telecommunications domain. Typical applications range from protocol implementations on hand-held devices (pagers, cell phones, etc.) to network controllers in infrastructure components (base stations, radio L.
