    An organizational framework for integrated CASE development and research that is based on the reference model for integrated software-engineering environments being developed by the NIST and the European Computer Manufacturers Association is proposed. Services defined in the reference model permit three forms of integration: data integration, control integration, and presentation integration. The ... View full abstract»

    The authors argue that current work on integrated project support environments (IPSEs) is based on an inappropriate view of integration, and that IPSE developers should create semantically rich infrastructures or produce well-integrated tool sets rather than open repositories or infrastructures. The requirements of IPSEs are outlined. The meaning of integration is examined, and tool integration in... View full abstract»

    Tool integration is not a property of a single tool, but of its relationships with other elements in the environment, chiefly other tools, a platform, and a process. Tool integration is about the extent to which tools agree. The subject of these agreements may include data format, user-interface conventions, use of common functions, or other aspects of tool construction. A framework that determine... View full abstract»

    The software factory concept which symbolizes a desired paradigm shift from labor-intensive software production to a more capital-intensive style in which substantial investments can be made at an acceptable risk level is discussed. Most traditional software environments emphasize support for producing code and associated documents. In a software factory, the focus shifts to coordinating informati... View full abstract»

    Research in CASE environments has focused on two kinds of integration: tool and object. A higher level of integration, process integration, which represents development activities explicitly in a software process model to guide and coordinate development and to integrate tools and objects, is proposed. Process integration uses software process models (SPMs) a process driver, a tool set, and interf... View full abstract»

    An experimental information-system environment, called DAIDA (development assistance for integrated database applications), developed as part of the European Community's ESPRIT program is described. DAIDA goes beyond traditional knowledge-based techniques for CASE by addressing three important dimensions of integration in a process-oriented model: how to handle dependencies among development stage...

    HyperCASE, an architectural framework for integrating CASE tools under an extended hypertext system, is described. HyperCASE's objective is to provide a powerful, user-friendly, integrated development platform that can significantly raise productivity. Its specific goal is to support software developers in project management, system analysis, design, and coding. HyperCASE integrates tools by combi... View full abstract»

    An integrated CASE environment for performing cleanroom systems engineering is proposed. The cleanroom integrated CASE environment is viewed as a series of iterative development activities. The fundamental integrating concepts and principles of cleanroom engineering provide a seamless development environment, with no information loss or artificial bridges between activities. It is shown that the i... View full abstract»

    Four classifications of artificial intelligence search techniques are discussed: unidirectional uniprocessor, bidirectional uniprocessor, unidirectional multiprocessor, and bidirectional multiprocessor search techniques. Wave-shaping PBA* (WS-PBA*) and search-space-clustering PBA*, (SSC-PBA*), two bidirectional AI search techniques, are compared. It is concluded that by maintaining a small number ...
