Sequence diagram: an “interaction diagram” that models a single scenario executing in a system. • 2nd most used UML diagram (behind class diagram). A use case is a collection of interactions between external actors and a system. • In UML, a use case is “the specification of a sequence of actions, including. What do Sequence Diagrams model? • capture the interaction between objects in the context of a collaboration. • show object instances that play the roles.
Franco Fummi. Moreira, M. By Emad Ebeid. Figure 3 shows the modeling. Figure 8. Section II introduces standard deviation of a sequence of occurrences of the same sequence diagrams, time expression language and VHDL event can be used inside expressions. Figure 2.
The simulation of the model allows to verify the specified sequence of exchanged information between components while checkers allow to verify that properties and timing constraints are met. The application of the methodology to the design of a wireless sensor node shows the validity of the approach and its simulation overhead.
Several UML profiles have been proposed, e. The system properties and eventually rises warning messages. Most of the literature focuses on UML structural points of the sequence diagram. What is missing in this diagrams e. The work in  is a first contribution in the constraints. The proposed work aims at filling these gaps by: VSL to specify the values of constraints, properties, and The whole verification flow derived from this approach is stereotype attributes particularly related to non-functional depicted in Figure 1.
VSL is based on Tagged Value Language describe both the behavior of the system in terms of data and OCL and provides specification for mathematical ex- exchanging between components and the constraints it must pressions arithmetic, logical, etc and time expressions de- satisfy. From this description a VHDL model is generated lays, periods, trigger conditions, etc. In is the contribution of the paper. The generated code is not fact, VSL can be used in tagged values, body of constraints, enough for simulation since sequence diagrams specify data and in any UML element associated with value specification.
TimeExpressions them; therefore, these entities should be linked to an external is the one of VSL sub-packages as depicted in Figure 2. Simulation takes as input a suitable set of test expressions and a specialized syntax for time value spec- benches and generates a trace in which failed constraints ifications and expressions.
As a result of the verification process, new improves UML with different capabilities; for instance, the model information are obtained to refine the UML model i-th occurrence of a given event can be expressed by an oc- and the constraints.
Section II introduces standard deviation of a sequence of occurrences of the same sequence diagrams, time expression language and VHDL event can be used inside expressions.
Figure 3 shows the modeling. Section III presents the proposed transformation structure of the time expression package, including different rules from sequence diagrams to VHDL code.
Section IV kinds of time-related expressions, such as instants, durations, experimentally validates the methodology by applying it to and jitter values. Sequence diagrams Sequence diagram is a UML behavior diagram based on Message Sequence Chart and Interaction Diagram; it shows how data is exchanged between process instances and in what order . As depicted in Figure 4 a sequence diagram shows objects interactions arranged in time sequence. It depicts the objects involved in the scenario and the sequence of messages exchanged between them to carry out the func- tionality of the scenario.
A sequence diagram annotated with constraints expressed in a language like Object Constraint Language OCL  can be the basis for communication protocol verification. Figure 2. Structure of the Time Expression package Figure 4. Syntax elements of Sequence Diagrams. VHDL It is a programming language that has been designed and optimized for describing the behavior of digital and mixed-signal systems such as field-programmable gate ar- rays and integrated circuits.
VHDL is commonly used to write text models that describe a logic circuit. Such a model is processed by a synthesis program to generate the actual system.
A simulation program is used to test the logic design using simulation models to represent the logic circuits that interface to the design. Furthermore, assertions are modeled and tested in VHDL based on boolean conditions and if the condition is false, a warning message is generated.
It is worth noting that in the last years this language is being very used in the embedded systems community because it simplifies Figure 5.
VSL-based time expressions and constraints in sequence the hardware design and allows validating the behavior of diagrams. There are two kinds of constraints, local This Section introduces the syntax elements of the se- constraint for single observation point 10 and global con- quence diagrams and describes how they are used to generate straint for different observation points 8.
TimeExpression 8 is used to represent a time value. Model and constraint specification TimeConstraint 9 represents a constraint that refers to the Figure 4 shows the syntax elements of a sequence di- range between two time expressions named TimeIntervalMin agram; numerical labels are used to show the items to 10 and TimeIntervalMax DurationObservation 12 be explained.
After each action is performed, the response or next action is located under the previous one. As you read down the lines you will see in detail how certain actions are performed in the provided model.

Hidden categories: Symbolizes a choice that is usually mutually exclusive between two or more message sequences. To represent alternatives, use the labeled rectangle shape with a dashed line inside. Use the following arrows and message symbols to show how information is transmitted between objects. These symbols may reflect the start and execution of an operation or the sending and reception of a signal. Represented by a solid line with a solid arrowhead. This symbol is used when a sender must wait for a response to a message before it continues.
The diagram should show both the call and the reply. Represented by a solid line with a lined arrowhead. Asynchronous messages don't require a response before the sender continues. Only the call should be included in the diagram. Represented by a solid line with a solid arrowhead, followed by an X. This message destroys an object. The diagram below provides a simple view of how the primary processes operate with each other over time. You can use Lucidchart to reshape the diagram any way you choose and to share it with your colleagues or collaborators.
An ATM allows patrons to access their bank accounts through a completely automated process. You can examine the steps of this process in a manageable way by drawing or viewing a sequence diagram.
The example below outlines the sequential order of the interactions in the ATM system. Just click to edit the template, and customize the sequence diagram so it suits your own needs.
In Lucidchart, creating a sequence diagram from scratch is surprisingly simple.
