After giving a history of the Integrated Civil Engineering system (ICES) invented by M.I.T., stressing its two main characteristics as a software development tool, and as a tool for the analysis and solution of problems, a brief introduction is given of its potential for development, and of the applications capability of its numerous subsystems already available. This is followed by the introduction of an ICES subsystem which is developed in three phases: analysis, implementation and execution. During the analysis phase one defines the capacity of the future Subsystem (class of problems), the structure and the names of the commands which will form the (POL), the general characteristics of the program and the data structure. During phase two (implementation) the commands (POL) are written using the CDL language, the COMMON of the Subsystem is constructed, the programs are written using ICETRAN and the structure of the modules which can be executed is defined. Then some applications of this are presented, and the interactive use of ICES is discussed.
