APSE - Support Environment for programming the ICS kernel

The complexity of the Task Analysis / ICS Support Definition process, combined with the sensitivity of the effectiveness of ICS support to the details of Kernel programming point to the need for a significant degree of Application Programmer support.

In functional terms, the support-programming process for an Application includes the following stages, each of which require particular capabilities within the APSE:
(a) Task and Support Analysis
- High Level tasks and goals - Application overview
- Medium level tasks and goals- Task analysis
- Low-level tasks and goals- Detailed analysis
- Low-level risks and support- Define activity ICS support

(b) Support Programming
- Parsing into ADL, MIDL, PDL- Code specification
- Detailed definition of Programming- Code synthesis

The fundamental concept built into the APSE is that of the Operator Support Use Case, which describes:
(a) an activity sequence,
(b) potential Operator error cases applicable to that sequence and
(c) remedial advice and other outputs to be generated by the ICS.
