Most of known technologies of object-oriented developments are UML-based; particularly widely used class diagrams that serve to describe the model of a software system, reflecting the regularities of the domains. CASE tools used for object-oriented developments, often lack verification and optimization functions of diagrams. This article will discuss one of the ways to present class diagram in the form of statements description logic, and then perform their verification, and optimization. Optimization process is based on design patterns and anti-patterns. We will show that some transformations could be done automatically, while in other cases suboptimal models need to be adjusted by a designer. Keywords—UML; domain models; description logic; concept; role; class diagram; design patterns; anti-patterns
