    Model-driven development (MDD) is an approach that uses models as a first class development artifacts to produce source code by utilizing model transformations. Process support is needed for effective MDD as it guides the development of the model and helps to manage the relationships between models. Our paper highlights the results of the survey on real life experiences of using MDD in companies conducted during October 2008. The results of the survey indicate that the MDD related challenges mentioned by the related literature are still valid. Regardless of the advantages identified by the respondents there are still quite many challenges to tackle before MDD will become more generally used in organizations. However, respondents found the approach useful and they feel that in the next five years the product development processes, methods and tools will be developed towards MDD in their organizations.
