Cross System Product application generator: Application design
by M. E. Dewell
This paper describes some techniques that can be used for Cross System Product/Application Development (CSP/AD) application design. CSP/AD is an application development tool for professional programmers. A well-designed application is obtained by using proven principles of structured analysis, structured design, and structured programming. An understanding of these principles and the application definition constructs provided by Cross System Product/Application Development is necessary for the CSP/AD application designer. Application design for CSP/AD is accomplished by using a combination of techniques for data design, application design, and application program design. For each of these design techniques there exist formal, accepted practices, and methodologies that may be used. These techniques are described, and methods that have proven successful for designing CSP/AD applications are presented.
