The model is not what gets delivered to the user and is not what will meet their eventual needs. ” Personally I would be happier in the one where some models were generated. And to some extent software is the same. On a personal level, I have found that working on software that can be placed within the framework of a model and in which the model provides the starting point, the basic structure and the context is extremely useful and I believe this helps to produce more robust systems.
