Abstract Acknowledgment is only the first step toward recovery from thispotentially devastating affliction.TheInstitute of Infectious Diseases has recently publishedresearch confirming that the many and varied strains of UML Fevercontinue to spread worldwide, indiscriminately infecting softwareanalysts, engineers, and managers alike. One of the fevers mostserious side effects has been observed to be a significant increasein both the cost and duration of developing software products. Thisincrease is largely attributable to a decrease in productivityresulting from fever-stricken individuals investing time and effortin activities that are of little or no value to producingdeliverable products. For example, afflictees of Open Loop Fevercontinue to create UML (Unified Modeling Language) diagrams forunknown stakeholders. Victims of Comfort Zone Fever remain glued inthe modeling space, postponing the development of software. Andthose suffering from Gnats Eyebrow Fever continue creating modelsthat glorify each and every Boolean value of prospective softwareimplementations.
