A. G. Kestell

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Today's systems are required to provide more diverse business functions and interact with more systems and users than ever before. The resulting increase in the size of both system descriptions and their audiences requires a model that is both structured and focussed to the system and target audiences. This paper proposes such a structure and provides practical guidance on how it can be focussed to its audience and verified.
