This paper advocates that extracting formal specification semantically consistent to the original legacy system will facilitate further redesign and forward engineering greatly. The three parts of reengineering could be integrated on the basis of a w... Read More about Abstraction: a key notation for reverse engineering in a system re-engineering approach..

DISCOVERing the impact of reality (poster session) (2000)
Conference Proceeding

In the last decade or so, many collaborative technologies have been developed which aim to allow people in geographically distributed locations to work together as if sharing the same space. Such tools range from the simple asynchronous resources of... Read More about Small group design activity and requirements on collaborative technologies..
