    Quality is probably one of the most serious concerns of today's software community. For software applications exhibiting a certain complexity, the quality of a product can only be guaranteed by a methodological approach, using appropriate administration and tools. The methodology and administration must be manifested in a well-defined and well-observed application development process. The process ... View full abstract»

    IBM's Repository Manager™ enables specifications involved in the program application development process to be managed. On the basis of the technology, the Repository Manager/MVS™ was developed as a product. The primary concepts and services of the technology are introduced, and specific aspects of the product and its operation are discussed. A discussion of what is involved in desig...

    One of the motivations for the use of a facility such as the Repository Manager™ in an information processing system is to centralize the information needed for the development of software. What this information is and how it is interrelated is defined in the underlying data model. This paper discusses the kinds of information required for software development and offers some suggestions on... View full abstract»

    Significant progress has been made in the effort to separate programmers from the management of data storage. By comparison, the window of a workstation is still managed and controlled in great detail by the typical programmer. In AD/Cycle™ user interface services defined a set of services that assist in the management of the displays on the workstation. These services also help increase th... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses a new approach to the use of information systems that is based on enterprise information system modeling concepts. This approach is primarily oriented to the enterprise expert, who is considered to be the individual most familiar with the functioning of a particular area of the enterprise information system. The approach is not primarily oriented toward the data processing pro... View full abstract»

    This paper describes some techniques that can be used for Cross System Product/Application Development (CSP/AD) application design. CSP/AD is an application development tool for professional programmers. A well-designed application is obtained by using proven principles of structured analysis, structured design, and structured programming. An understanding of these principles and the application d...

    Knowledge-based systems technology is a branch of artificial intelligence that deals with the processing of knowledge, as distinct from other branches of artificial intelligence that deal with topics such as robotics, vision systems, and speech recognition. This paper describes how, over the last decade, knowledge-based systems have evolved into a viable technology for building commercial data pro... View full abstract»

    A probabilistic method for segmenting continuous speech into lexical units is described. The algorithm assumes initial conversion of the continuous speech signal to a discrete representation over some suitable alphabet. The problem of determining such alphabets is not considered. Experiments used keyed input in English, French, German, and Russian. We hypothesize that the low error rates obtained ... View full abstract»
