Message Sequence Chart (MSC) - A Survey of the new CCITT Language for the Description to Traces within Communications Systems.

  title={Message Sequence Chart (MSC) - A Survey of the new CCITT Language for the Description to Traces within Communications Systems.},
  author={Jens Grabowski and Ekkart Rudolph},
Message Sequence Charts (MSCs) are a widespread means for description and graphical visualisation of selected system runs within distributed systems, especially telecommunication systems. Various kinds of MSCs with similar expressive power are used frequently within industry and standardisation bodies. Therefore, the CCITT (Comité Consultatif International Télégraphique et Téléphonique) attempts to harmonise their use by means of the new standard language Message Sequence Chart (MSC) in 1992… CONTINUE READING
