Model-Driven Development (MDD)

Definition - What does Model-Driven Development (MDD) mean?

Model-driven development (MDD) is a software engineering approach that uses model to create a product. Model-driven development is sometimes used interchangeably with model-driven engineering, and may refer to specific tools and resources, or a model-driven approach.

MDD is part of a trend toward more diverse approaches to the development of IT products. Another aspect of this innovation is "agile" practices, which is in some cases are associated with model-driven development.

Techopedia explains Model-Driven Development (MDD)

Experts suggest that those using a model-driven development approach need to take care to avoid the problems related to this method. This means ensuring that models are smaller and less complex than the eventual solutions, and to be aware that flexibility may or may not be built into models as necessary. Developers need to look critically at what model-driven development may offer, how models are created, and what developer teams and others are promising clients in terms of software design, engineering and delivery.

Ideas about the development and engineering process now play a major role in IT processes, especially in larger companies where a more detailed staff hierarchy adds more layers to a process.
