Bowman, H. and Derrick, J. and Linington, P.F. and Steen, M. (1995) FDTs for ODP. Computer Standards and Interfaces, 17 (5-6). pp. 457-479. ISSN 0920-5489.
This paper discusses the use and integration of formal techniques into the Open Distributed Processing (ODP) standardization initiative. The ODP reference model is a natural progression from OSI. Multiple viewpoints are used to specify complex ODP systems. Formal methods are playing an increasing role within ODP. We provide an overview of the ODP reference model, before discussing the ODP requirements on FDTs, and the role such techniques play. Finally we discuss the use of formalisms in the central problem of maintaining cross viewpoint consistency.
