Abstract

The ODP development 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. There are two technical problems concerning the use of formal techniques within ODP which have yet to be addressed: these are unification and consistency checking. We show how Z can be used to provide a solution for both; and hence provide a mechanism for Z to be used properly in the ODP development process.
