Design Support for Distributed Systems: DSE4DS

Akehurst, David H., Bordbar, Behzad, Derrick, John, Waters, A. Gill (2002) Design Support for Distributed Systems: DSE4DS. In: Finney, Joe and Haahr, Mads and Montressor, Alberto, eds. Procedings of the 7th Cabernet Radicals Workshop. . (KAR id:13718)


Distributed System design is a highly complicated and non-trivial task. The problem is characterized by the need to design multi-threaded, multi-processor, and multi-media systems. Design frameworks such as Open Distributed Processing (ODP), the ITU/ISO standard, provide significant, theoretical, guidance and aids towards the provision of successful distributed system designs. The purpose of the DSE4DS project is to develop these theoretical aids into practical design support that will assist designers in the construction of distributed system specifications.
