As an ignorant I'll ask it broad:

What do people have to say about us as a discipline/professionals and UML?
Is it something to do with as?
Do we integrate?

Thanks
Omri

IBM has designed a process they call OVID (Object, View Interaction Design)
which uses the UML notations heavily for low level prototyping. I had
experimented with it, and it works well in a developer centric
environment...

Hi Omri,
Well for some it does, I'm sure not for all...
As people in interaction design come from different disciplines, UML is
probably not part of the agenda for all...
There was a thread about use cases a few weeks ago, you can see there some
views also about UML.
For me UML are tools that helps with analysis and other people (from
development) may be familiar with so it is a good basis for communicating.
I use what is relevant, according to module complexity, time etc...

Cheers,
Nurit

hey - so i was wondering - how important is UML and OVID, i did a little
google and found that it was initiated some time in 97, how prevalent is
this in the Industry now - or is it that just a few people use it;

i'm sure its a great tool to interact your ideas with the Development team -
but would it make sense investing time to learn it - just a question;

- jerry

There's also UMLi:

http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/img/umli/index.html

It's specifically for application interface work. Never seen it used.
Indeed, I've never seen a designer use UML at all, although in theory
I can see cases where it might be useful.
