This paper describes a feasibility study to implement partial tool support for the graphical component of the box structure methodology (BSM). By following the defined strategy and process, an existing computer-aided software engineering (CASE) environment has been extended with a customizer to provide support for the box definition graphics (BDG) component of BSM. The critical functions required from a CASE environment are also described to provide the reader with a background for selecting one of the various implementations available today.
