Embodying an organized discipline of thought and action, the SADT methodology has been successful in many applications previously thought too nebulous for technical treatment. At the time the definitive papers on SADT,* Sofrech's Structured Analysis and Design Technique, were published in 1977,1-3 the methodology had been in extensive development and use for several years. Originally introduced as a "system-blueprinting" method for documenting the architecture of large and complex systems,4… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

SPECIF-X: A Tool for CASE
TLDR
The use of the tool facilitates the introduction and the practical use of SADT, and, on the other hand, that it boosts both the quality of the functional requirements and the analyst's productivity.
Using the structred analysis and design technique (SADT) in simulation conceptual modeling
TLDR
A new framework for developing conceptual models is proposed which focuses mainly on the first phase of CM, that of System Description (SD), and the benefits and limitations of this framework are discussed.
Augmenting SADT with Respect to Timing Constraints, Formalization and Dependability Evaluation
  • Computer Science
  • 2016
TLDR
A review on this method and its applicability in the industrial and pedagogical fields and some researches to augment the SADT method with respect to timing constraints and formalization and to take into account the dependability evaluation are presented.
A multiple viewed approach to software requirements
TLDR
This dissertation proposes a framework and methodology whereby multiple requirements specifications can be produced in several languages of the participants' own choosing, then translated into a meta-language (that is, a language capable of capturing features of several different requirements languages) in order to analyze their common features.
Matching pedagogical intent with engineering design process models for precollege education
TLDR
Fundamental problems that must be resolved if preengineering is to enter the P-12 curriculum with meaningful standards and is to be connected through learning outcomes, shared understanding of engineering design, and other vestiges to vertically link P- 12 engineering with higher education and the practice of engineering are examined.
The interdisciplinary conceptual design of buildings
The Interdisciplinary Conceptual Design of Buildings Design activity during the conceptual phase of building projects is dynamic, vibrant and as a result, chaotic in appearance. This problem is
Organizing the Tasks in Complex Design Projects
TLDR
A matrix representation is used to capture both the sequence of and the technical relationships among the many design tasks to be performed which define the “technical structure” of a design project which is then analyzed in order to find alternative sequences and/or definitions of the design tasks.
A Design Method for Object-Oriented Programming
TLDR
The result of this thesis is a design method which guides system designers to organise the design activities towards an object- oriented implementation and forms the basis of future work which will lead to a computer-aided software engineering environment for object-oriented programming.
Unintrusive Ways to Integrate Formal Specifications in Practice
TLDR
This work shows how to integrate the Larch two-tiered specification method with two used in the waterfall model of software development: Structured Analysis and Structure Charts.

Structured Analysis for Requirements Definition
TLDR
The needs for requirements definition are examined, and a proposed approach to meeting those objectives with three interrelated subjects: context analysis, functional specification, and design constraints is proposed.
