    Although design notations are increasingly being given a formal semantics, often the notations are only informally related to their semantic models. This may be because graphical design notations cannot directly be given an abstract syntax using the well-studied string grammars. The paper proposes the use of node-labelled controlled graph grammars to define the abstract syntax of graphical design ... View full abstract»

    Techniques for the specification and verification of computer network protocols have progressed significantly in the past decade. The progress is largely due to the development of the state transition approach to formal specification and to the greater automation of the verification process. Some ISO state event protocols have been specified and verified using the state transition technique. Howev... View full abstract»

    We explore the behaviour of neural network software quality models. We select a multiple regression quality model from the principal components of software complexity metrics collected from a large commercial software system. We train two neural networks; one with the complete set of principal components and one with the set of components selected by multiple regression model selection. Comparison... View full abstract»

  • Towards more flexible management of software systems development using meta-models

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):79 - 88

    Software development paradigms currently used within industry are based on established models of the software life-cycle. As technology has evolved and become more accessible, more flexible approaches to the development of software systems have been advocated. Several new models have evolved over recent years based on more powerful software engineering tools and more sophisticated development meth... View full abstract»
