FEATURES

“CASE Today and Tomorrow”
by Warren Keuffel.
Methods originally developed for paper and pencil in the MIS environment can be poor fit for embedded systems development. As the methods have been enhanced and extended, so have the CASE tools. Here's a look at some alternatives and hints on what you can expect in the future.

“CASE Meets Real-Time”

by Andrew Topper.
Despite the hype and hoopla, not all CASE tools were designed with real-time system development in mind. After exploring a sample problem from several perspectives, you'll be in a better position to judge individual tools.

“Hiding with Efficiency”
by Daniel Telford and Ken Becker.
The advantages of software engineering aren't just academic. Telford and Becker reworked some existing Ada and JOVIAL programs to use information hiding and wound up with quantifiable efficiency gains.

“A CASE Study in Avionics”

by Steven Barsh and Thomas Petz.
If you're interested in applying the theory but afraid you'll get bitten in practice, using a structured method can save you time and money. But learning from the experience of others can save your nerves as well.
