Quality products require quality analysis; analysis that delivers the necessary behavioural information using the assigned resources in the prescribed time frame. Using analysis tools effectively requires deep understanding of theory and practice. Practical analysis could be supported by managing analysis tools information and their past uses. If managed properly, this information would be beneficial for present and future tool reuse. Following an examination of analysis activities, a model of analysis activities is developed including various aspects that influence it. The model includes all contextual information of analysis. With this information the model could improve analysis as well as prevent serious analysis errors. The model called AML - analysis modelling language - is described precisely with the object-oriented formalism unified modelling language (UML). The most important part of AML, the static structure diagram, is discussed in this paper. AML could be transformed with reasonable effort into an analysis process management system.
