• ### Using process support to achieve distribution

Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):1/1 - 1/4
| |PDF (184 KB)

The most important aspect of process support is that it provides a mechanism by which the functional architecture of an organisations may be described. An organisation can be modelled as a collection of processes involving interacting agents, for example, a configuration management agent interacting with a release and control agent. These agents are modelled as roles' whereas meetings and other f... View full abstract»

• ### Emeraude architecture for distributed development support environment

Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):3/1 - 3/4
| |PDF (144 KB)

Emeraude V12 is a commercially available product that includes an industrial implementation of the Portable Common Tool Environment (PCTE), the international standard defining the Open Repository for Integrated Project Support Environments (IPSE). A PCTE objective is to provide software developers with a powerful and machine-independent platform allowing integration of applications and cooperation... View full abstract»

• ### ESF: the Software Bus [software engineering environment]

Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):4/1 - 4/3
| |PDF (132 KB)

The Eureka Software Factory project, ESF, is a large scale project concerned with creating a class of software engineering environments which support the industrialised production of software. An ESF environment is a distributed development support environment, and is distinguished from traditional data-centric software engineering environments by being communications-oriented; it is called a Fact...

• ### Distribution in the ARISE project [software engineering environments]

Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):5/1 - 5/3
| |PDF (144 KB)

ARISE (RACE project 1021) addresses many different aspects of software engineering for advanced telecommunications in Europe. One of these aspects is distributed engineering of software. The ARISE consortium has studied and demonstrated distributed tools and environments. The article focuses on factors that the architect of environments to support distributed engineering of software must take into... View full abstract»

• ### HP SoftBench-support for distributed working

Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):7/1 - 7/5
| |PDF (192 KB)

The paper introduces the elements of the HP CASE product SoftBench that are relevant to its support for distributed working. It identifies the degree to which the current product supports distribution and outlines some of the areas of related research being carried out in HP Laboratories Bristol. The HP SoftBench product is an integrated software development environment designed to facilitate rapi... View full abstract»

• ### Distributed software development and VSF

Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):6/1 - 6/5
| |PDF (256 KB)

A development project is a highly complex, distributed process, comprising a large number of highly inter-dependent parallel activities. This complexity is the motivation behind the desire to use technology, exemplified by computer-based tools, to simplify the management and performance of the process. There are three general directions from which the provision of automated support for the develop... View full abstract»

• ### Environments for cooperative systems development

Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):9/1 - 9/4
| |PDF (244 KB)

The predictions made in the early-1980s about the role of software engineering environments and their positive influence on the software process have not come true. Integrated project support environments are not widely used and their benefits have not been demonstrated. A bottom-up approach to environment construction which starts with an environment architecture is doomed to commercial failure. ... View full abstract»

• ### A viewpoint-based framework for software development environments

Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):10/1 - 10/2
| |PDF (108 KB)

The paper outlines a framework for CASE tool development and integration which supports distribution. The framework supports the use of multiple perspectives in software development. The primary building blocks of this framework are viewpoints View full abstract»

• ### A Japanese perspective [DP industry]

Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):11/1 - 11/3
| |PDF (160 KB)

The author reports on the Japanese software industry. The level of technology used in Japanese software production is modest, but what they lack in technology they make up for in careful design and management. The impact of prestige projects such as SIGMA and the 5th generation is more subtle than expected. Despite the modest successes of the 5th generation project a 6th generation project is alre...
