Detailed Design

  • Pankaj Jalote
Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Computer Science book series (UTCS)


In previous chapters we discussed two different approaches for system design. In system design we concentrate on the modules in a system and how they interact with each other. The specifications of a module are often communicated by its name, the English phrase with which we label the module. In previous examples we have used words like “sort” and “assign” to communicate the functionality of the modules. The specifications of a module are conveyed by our understanding of the phrases that label the modules. In a design document, a more detailed specification is given by explaining in natural language what a module is supposed to do.
