    Describes work carried out for Thorn Security Ltd to illustrate the application of Ward/Mellor structured analysis methods to the analysis of fire monitoring systems. Typical target systems are embedded using a real time, multi-tasking kernel to schedule processes. An extension to the method appropriate for the design of such systems proposed by two CASE tool suppliers, Ready Systems and Westmount... View full abstract»

    The topics traditionally associated with control engineering courses at undergraduate level are, typically: dynamic modelling of physical systems, principles of linear systems, feedback theory and digital control systems. Modern control systems depend heavily on software for their implementation and the authors believe that it is advisable to integrate the teaching of control engineering with real...

    Considers how a CASE tool could be used to develop Occam code for transputer systems. Most CASE tools enable designs to be created which are later implemented in a sequential language such as Ada, C, Pascal or Fortran. As the number of multi-processor systems is rapidly increasing thus there is a need for a new CASE tool. The parallel CASE tool proposed in this paper is fairly restricted. Transput...

    One area of interest of the Parallel Processing Research Group at Sheffield is the software engineering of embedded real-time industrial control applications. Many of these applications are considered as safety-critical. Formal techniques are often cited as highly reliable for both software development methods and formally proven hardware. It is envisaged that, for the foreseeable future, such rig... View full abstract»
