A comprehensive solution is presented in this paper to the environment problem by integrating the concept of CAME into CASE, where attention is paid to a conceptual model of such an environment that is designed to avoid the confusion around integration issues, and to meet the specification of user requirements concerning flexible method support. An outline of the motivations behind this research, the philosophy, architecture, functionality and future developments are presented.
