Software Development Using Concurrently Executable Modules

Objective

The objective of the PEACOCK project was to design and implement a unified family of languages covering the whole software life-cycle. All these languages were to use the concept of Concurrently Executable Modules (CEM), and have a common signature (abstract syntax).
The objective of the project was to design and implement a unified family of languages covering the whole software life cycle. All these languages use the concept of concurrently executable modules (CEM), and have a common signature (abstract syntax). Development of a unified set of design and implementation languages covering whole of the design process (the Pi language) was completed. A single model of system structure, defined in a language reference manual, was specified. A model of system development was constructed, based on the model of system structure, and a primer giving guidelines for its use was prepared.
The project achieved the following:
-completion of the development of a unified set of design and implementation languages covering the whole of the design process (the Pi language)
-the specification of a single model of system structure, defined in a language reference manual
-the construction of a model of system development based on the model of system structure, and a primer giving guidelines for its use.
Exploitation
Plessey will be using the method in its RACE ARISE project and in product development. The concepts and methods are being used at Dortmund University in other projects. The use of the Pi language concepts is envisaged, though no support tools were developed.
