Case Studies in Systematic Software Development
by Cliff B. Jones and Robert C. F. Shaw
Publisher: Prentice Hall 1990
Number of pages: 405
This book covers the case studies on the application of the most widely known and used formal methods in software development, called the Vienna Development Method (more often referred to as VDM). VDM was developed in an industrial environment but has also evoked considerable academic research. Different users of this book will obviously employ it in different ways. It is likely to be background reading for undergraduate courses which use one or the other textbook to teach VDM; while an MSc or industrial course might make detailed analysis of the case studies. A particularly valuable way of doing this is to organize some sort of 'walkthrough' of chosen examples. By their very nature, few of the examples are closed and there is excellent scope for extending a case study as a major project.
