    Analyses and design method consist of process, notation and supporting CASE tool. The purpose of this seminar work is to describe one process, one notation and one CASE tool as they have been used in the analyses and design of process simulation field applications at VTT Automation. Process called enterprise component modeling by Platinum is introduced in chapter 2. Paradigm plus as a case tool is presented in chapter 3. First a general description is given. Then some Paradigm extensions to UML are described and at the end own experiences have been listed. Second part of the seminar work deals with our own analyses and design experiences. Chapter 4 introduces a reduced modeling method where our way of using techniques described at the first part is outlined. A Case study of designing an OPC (OLE for Process Control) server for a dynamic process simulator is described in chapter 5.
