Conference paper


A general picture of the recent development in the field of systems engineering and application software development is presented. In the last years new aspects of systems development have been recognized. However, these are not technical ones, and they serve the users’ interests rather than the developers’. Methodologies have been worked out for the new areas, and also supporting tools emerged. This process has an impact on the software providers, because the users expect them to be knowledgeable on the new areas, too. In short terms, the meaning of ‘structured paradigm’ has been widened, and we can talk a certain change of paradigms. The paper encounters some of the new areas and briefly describes a methodology of that area.
