Abstract : The Computer Aided Prototyping System (CAPS) was created for rapidly prototyping real-time systems to determine early in the software development life cycle whether system requirements can be met. The CAPS consists of several software tools that automatically generate an executable Ada model of the proposed system. This thesis describes the development of a design database (DDB) for CAPS. The DDB is an engineering database that contains all the information related to a software prototype design. The DDB enhances the CAPS environment and the prototyping model by providing to the designer the capability to store, retrieve, view, edit, and control variation and versioning of the prototype components. This thesis describes the design, test and implementation of a tree structure variation and version control method for supporting CAPS.
