Abstract

In our study of the design process, the goal has been to develop methodologies that will form a foundation for computer design at the architectural and implementation levels. The architecture of a computer system is defined by Blaaw and Brooks to be “its functional appearance to its immediate user; that is, its conceptual structure and functional behavior as seen by one who programs in machine language.” The implementation, on the other hand, is defined by them to be “the logical organization of its data flow and controls.” [1]
