Who are you? I am Stephen J. Mellor. My card reads “Freeter”, a Japanese word, derived from English, that means “free agent.” I was previously Chief Scientist of the Embedded Systems Division at Mentor Graphics Corporation. In 2004, MGC acquired Project Technology, Inc., the company I founded in 1985 to “make software development a rational, controllable, predictable process.”
What do you do? I explain, with clarity and humor, the intricacies of real-time and embedded systems model-driven development, in both presentations and text. I speak at commercial conferences such as the Embedded Systems Conference, academic conferences, such as «MODELS», in public courses, and in private settings. I have also written several books:
- Structured Development for Real-Time Systems (Vols 1-3)
- Object-Oriented Analysis: Modeling the World (Two volumes)
- Executable UML: A Foundation for Model-Driven Architecture
- MDA Distilled: Principles of Model-Driven Architecture.
What else do you do? I am a prime mover at the Object Management Group (OMG), having proposed and submitted several executable UML-related standards. I was also elected to the Architecture Board, the final technical gateway for all standards adopted by the OMG. And I have sat on their Board of Directors."
