Abstract

Layered diagrams are diagrams whose elements are organized into sets of layers. Layered diagrams are routinely used in many branches of engineering, except Software Engineering. In this paper, we propose to add layered diagrams to UML modeling tools, and elaborate the concept by exploring usage scenarios. We validate the concept by implementation, lab assessments, and field testing. We conclude that layers enhance and complement conventional diagrams and model structuring techniques, are easy to add to existing modeling infrastructure, and are easy to apply by modelers.
