Abstract:

THE GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP TECHNIQUES FOR CREATING A KNOWLEDGE BASE CONTAINING THE DESIGN HISTORY OF SOFTWARE INTENSIVE SYSTEMS AND TO DEVELOP PROTOTYPE TOOLSFOR USING THIS KNOWLEDGE TO REDUCE LIFE CYCLE COSTS FOR THESE SYSTEMS. A FORMALISM IS PROPOSED USING CONCEPTS FROM OBJECT ORIENTED PROGRAMMING. THIS FORMALISM WILL BE SHOWN TO BE USEFUL IN AUTOMATING OR AIDING IN SOME ASPECTS OF MANY OF THE STAGES IN THE SOFTWARE LIFE CYCLE, INCLUDING DESIGN, IMPLEMENTATION, AND MAINTENANCE. THE PHASE I EFFORTWILL INCLUDE COMPLETION OF THE FORMALISM AND THE DEVELOPMENTAND DOCUMENTATION OF PROTOTYPE TOOLS FOR THE CREATION AND APPLICATION OF THE KNOWLEDGE BASE. THESE TOOLS WILL BE APPLIED TO SOME SIMPLE SYSTEMS AND THE RESULTS WILL BE EVALUATED TO DETERMINE THEIR UTILITY IN THE LARGE SYSTEMS NECESSARY FOR THE REAL TIME CONTROL OF COMPLEX HARDWARE AND THE HANDLING OF LARGE AMOUNTS OF DATA. IT IS EXPECTED THAT THESE TECHNIQUES WILL RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS IN CURRENT APPLICATIONS AND FACILITATE THE USE AND INTEGRATION OF FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS IN COMPUTER AIDED SOFTWARE ENGINEERING.
