A new comprehensive approach is proposed to support, in a
systematic, production-oriented way, the software
engineering activities commonly referred to as design,
implementation and integration. This comprehensiveness is
gained by creating a set of e-a-r based system
representations and storing them in a software production
database to form a unique framework for software
Compared with the present state of Finnish embedded
software production, target programs could be produced in
a more mechanised manner from design representations in
order to reduce the over emphasized implementation
efforts currently needed and to increase product quality,
productivity and consistency between the work results.
The same techniques can be applied successfully to other
software engineering representations.
Since software engineering as a whole is a set of
activities for creation and manipulation of system
representations, specific tool function facilities
integrated to the methodology utilised are developed to
assist the software engineer.
Modifiability, usability and support for reusable
software are seen as fundamental requirements for the
usage in production of the support system developed.
Without utilising an advanced physical engineering
environment these might, however, not be achieved.
