Structured Development Techniques for Real-Time Software Systems: A Case Study
Complexity of problems to be solved by computers has increased as computer technology has improved. The real-time environment provides the computer engineer with many such complex problems. Formal development techniques, suited for real-time systems, have been slow to evolve. This paper presents a structured approach to systems development. The structured development approach is applied to a real-time problem. The real-time problem used as the case study entails controlling a toy train on a circular track such that the train catches a ball released on a ramp above the track. The application of the structured development approach to this problem for the analysis, design, and implementation phases of the software development cycle is described. A comparison is made between structured development and object-oriented development.
