We present an evaluation study on applying aspect-oriented modelling concepts in UPPAAL timed automata. The study is focusing on the modelling and verification effort that can be reduced when applying explicit aspect-oriented structuring principles in model construction. We discuss the drawbacks and benefits related to model update and verification effort. The approach suggested is benchmarked on a mission-critical crisis management system case study. We demonstrate the usability of our approach by extracting the aspects such as resource authentication and mission execution. Finally, we demonstrate by experimental data how our approach is more efficient compared to verification and testing effort applied
in the non-aspect-oriented model.
