    The authors present a system which supports maintenance by allowing members of a maintenance team to easily construct and structure a shared pool of maintenance information. Through the provision of a range of unconstrained documentation facilities, documentation can be constructed incrementally by any member of the maintenance team. The general model adopted exploits hypertext technology to allow... View full abstract»

    The PRESTIGE Project commenced in January 1988 with the intention of focusing on an area that existing CASE tools for Jackson System Development had hitherto not addressed. The main aim of the Project was to build a toolkit which would provide comprehensive support for the implementation phase of JSD. This paper provides a brief description of JSD. The architecture of the PRESTIGE workbench and it... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this study was to investigate the provision of measures suitable for evaluating software designs. These would allow some degree of predictability in estimating the quality of a coded software product. Experiments were conducted to test hypotheses concerning the evaluation of software design metrics related to code complexity. Three medium-sized software projects were used. Metrics f...

    The authors describe the background and development of a component interface description language called the Component Interface Descriptor (CIDER). CIDER is an object-oriented design language, which enables a software engineer to capture, integrate and reuse component interfaces based on a model of the reusable software component, the 3C model. The 3C model of the reusable component is named afte... View full abstract»
