Discipline of Software Engineering

Front Cover
North-Holland, 1991 - Science - 484 pages
This comprehensive approach to the creation of software systems charts a road through system modelling techniques, allowing software engineers to create software meeting two very basic requirements: bull; that the software system represent a narrow emulation of the organization system that served as its model; bull; and that the software system display life attributes identical to those of the organization system that it automatizes.The result is a quantum leap increase in software application quality. Such benefit is achieved by the introduction of a fundamental paradigm: the office-floor metaphor which incorporates such well-balanced basic ideas as the functional normalization of tasks and information (in sharp contrast to the classic data normalization) and the principle of tenant-ownership.
