Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


A simple abstraction of the artifacts and activities of software development is proposed. Its purpose is to serve as a framework for discussion and comparison in software engineering, just as the ISO 7-Layer Reference Model has served in the networking area. The reference model is more complete and formal treatment of some the earlier work, presented in higher-order logic.
