Abstract

An extendible CASE tools environment is currently being researched at the Department of Computer Science, University of Sheffield. This environment is designed primarily for developing parallel system software but is configurable for other applications. It requires an underlying generic data repository to represent information about the system under development in a consistent and complete form. The representation must be independent of the source, and intended use, of its data.

The paper starts by explaining the importance of a CASE data repository and the overall hierarchical structure of our repository data model. Then, it goes on to suggest a meta-meta data model for a generic CASE repository.
