An innovative methodology for software development is described. The main objectives of the methodology are to allow rapid construction of an executable specification (or prototype) of a system, to support testing the prototype by means of simulation, to facilitate a smooth transition to a target system and to provide the means for reusing specification, design and code of subsystems. This is achieved by incorporating several known paradigms in a unique form. The basis is the object-oriented approach. The authors use an architectural language for describing the high level structure of a system and a state machine notation for describing individual object behavior. These two are separated to enhance reusability, which is achieved with the help of a knowledge base that holds existing designs. The methodology is supported by a collection of automated tools
