Detailed Design

Part of the Springer Compass International book series (COMPASS)


In the last chapter we discussed different issues involved in system design and described two design methodologies. 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.
