  • Application of CASE within manufacturing industry

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):140 - 152
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1147 KB)

    The current emphasis of many manufacturing organisations is on the achievement of internationally competitive standards. Computer-based manufacturing technology is recognised as a key to this. However, despite the growing dependence on information systems in the support of advanced manufacture, the manufacturing industry has been slow to adopt approaches and tools to effectively implement such sys...

    Since the early 1980s, AT&T ISTEL has been operating a business and software process re-engineering programme. The paper presents the instrumental role of the AT&T ISTEL in-house corporate CASE in providing holistic system generation and class leading productivity levels. The paper focuses on how the evolving needs of different classes of client -both internal and external-have been met. The archi... View full abstract»

  • CASE in the third generation

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):159 - 166
    Cited by:  Papers (3)

    The paper outlines and analyses the development of CASE and proposes a direction for research and development. The focus is on analyst workbenches, rather than other types of CASE tool, but the proposals and conclusions are generally applicable to tools supporting other phases of the development life-cycle. The current generation of CASE tools has no knowledge of the software process. An architect... View full abstract»

  • Knowledge-based CASE tools: improving performance using domain-specific knowledge

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):167 - 173
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    Knowledge-based CASE tools are able to play an active part in the design of computer-based systems. Providing such tools with in-built domain-specific (or 'real world') knowledge can enhance both the performance and the appearance of intelligence. However, little work has so far been carried out as to how this might be achieved. The paper illustrates how such knowledge may be provided in the form ... View full abstract»

  • Executable specifications and CASE

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):174 - 182

    The idea of executing graphical system models is not new. Several accounts of research in this area are well documented. Despite this, such research is still in its infancy, particularly in relation to CASE environments and the practical application of ideas. The paper considers executability within CASE, with a focus on executable specifications. The importance of executability is highlighted, an... View full abstract»

  • CASE support for collaborative modelling: re-engineering conceptual modelling techniques to exploit the potential of CASE tools

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):183 - 189
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    To date, CASE tools have generally been built around pre-CASE analysis and design techniques. The paper argues that more benefit would be obtained if analysis and design techniques were 're-engineered' so as to make the best use of the capabilities offered by CASE tools. Techniques such as entity-relationship modelling and data flow diagrams have successfully been transferred to the CASE environme... View full abstract»
