The CASE Environment Guide

Front Cover
Avebury Technical, 1993 - Computer-aided engineering - 395 pages
"The technology and use of Computer Aided Systems Engineering (CASE) has evolved and matured in its value to the information systems community. Increasingly central to this evolution is the concept of a Distributed Development Environment with tools to support the automation of not only the engineering of application systems, but also the automation of the tasks involved in the infrastructure mechanisms that underpin the modern development environment." "This book is the third of a trilogy, the first two books written jointly with Tony Bidgood. The first, The CASE Handbook for Information Managers, provides a management introduction and guide to selection and implementation, as well as the principles, terminology, types and methods, and vendors of CASE products. The second, The CASE Strategies Guide for Information Managers, reviews and explains the strategies of a number of major hardware and software vendors in the CASE arena. It compares and contrasts the strategies and their supporting products, with a view to how well they meet the requirements laid out in the CASE Handbook." "In this third book, the author has looked at the detail behind the selection criteria he laid out in the CASE Handbook in the context of the 'Bigger Picture'. The first chapter looks at the Distributed Development Environment. The remaining chapters review in detail the way selection criteria can be built for the different types of CASE tools that support this bigger picture." "The readership includes directors of information management, senior information system managers, data administrators and CASE tool suppliers, developers and users."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
