The ASPIS (Application Software Prototype Implementation System) project was one of the projects in the Software Technology programme of the 1984 ESPRIT work plan. This book describes the results of the project and gives a critical comparison between the ASPIS approach to system development and other system development methods. It begins by describing the operation of the ASPIS system, which is a knowledge-based approach to software development. It describes in detail the functionality of the assistants for the specification of requirements, prototyping, and design. The control of change and the acquisition of domain knowledge are explained. Part II of this book describes how the ASPIS system has been designed. It contains a technical justification to support the functionalities, and looks at infrastructure and the assistants. The book is aimed at those engaged in software R&D, students, and software development managers.
