Abstract

This paper presents a controlled experiment to investigate whether the comprehension of source code increases in case novice software engineers use abstract software models produced in the early phase of the software development, i.e., requirements analysis. The study has revealed that there is not significant difference in the comprehension of source code achieved by using or not abstract software models.
