Abstract

Software development by formal methods involves an overwhelming amount of technical and managerial detail. Systematic organisation of this information in a method's support environment is an important engineering concern. In this paper, we introduce a model for object organisation in software environments for formal methods, with particular emphasis on easy construction, modification, review and reuse of software objects. We demonstrate how the model can be instantiated to individual methodologies to obtain the object organisation architectures for their support environments.
