Abstract:

This report introduces the basic approach taken in designing the design management and job assignment system DMJASfor CAPS93. This approach uses a model of software evolution 8 which defines how a software change, once has been approved, will be applied to the software release version to produce another version of the software incorporating this change. This process is called an evolution step. The proposed system represents a management layer between the user interface supporting two user classes, managers and designers and the design database. The DMJAS controls the software evolution process in an incrementally evolving software system where the job steps to be scheduled are only partially known time required, the set of sub-tasks for each step, and the inputoutput constraints between steps are all uncertain, and are all subject to change as steps are carried out. Models of design database and managerdesigner interface are explained followed by the proposed system.
