When people use the term software design method, they often have a particular aspect of the
total design in mind. Our definition of this term is a broad one: start with a rather sparse set of
requirements gathered into a requirement specification and derive a validated implementation of
these requirements. The emphasis, however, is on the development of the target software, with
minor references to the additional software needed for successful testing. installation, trouble-
shooting, and quality assurance of the target software. One of the drawbacks of discussing soft-
ware development as an abstract activity is that it tends to give a mechanistic view of the design
process, while most practitioners would emphasize the contribution of individual designers
[Brooks 87]. We agree with this position, and we reference the ideas of such practitioners to
balance the more simplistic parts of this study.
