A Review of System Development Systems

T.H. Tse 1 and L. Pong 2



The requirements for a system development system are defined and used as guidelines to review six such systems: SAMM, SREM, SADDT, ADS/SODA. PSL/PSA and Systematics. It is found that current system development systems emphasise only validation and user verification. They can perform relatively little on automatic file optimisation, process optimisation and maintenance.
