    Specification reuse by analogy is proposed as an alternative paradigm to support requirements analysis. The paradigm is founded on a descriptive model of analogy in software engineering problems, which suggests critical determinants of software engineering analogies. This model is discussed in terms of two non-simple software engineering analogies, which also suggest the potential of specification... View full abstract»

    The paper puts forward a possible generic model for the process of technology transfer. It describes in a generalised style how the process takes place in typical industrial circumstances, ranging from initial awareness to in-use support. One might image that the example under study is the adoption of a new software engineering method and associated toolset in a company, in a business which makes ... View full abstract»

    Moon is a notation for designing complete systems, addressing the description of subsystems to be executed by both computer and non-computer processors. The design method is object-oriented in approach, based primarily on the Mascot 3 notation and also on the JSP notation. Systems and subsystems are defined as collections of data repositories, related activities and subsystems. It should therefore... View full abstract»
