Does this methodology is intended to replace UML, or is a layer above UML ?

An interface is a node(a minima) in the complexity between two projects or
The highest management of a project consist in the management of the
versions of each interface. So, the interfaces defines subprojects which
can be modified without other constraint than the respect of the interfaces.
The modifications of the interfaces are handled by the main manager.
If a new methodology can overrule this, it want to know it !
Anyway, I wish more information about "concepts".I don't have a full working methodology or a final definition for "Concept",
