Abstract : The objective of this thesis is to perform the preliminary design and partial development of an automated software development environment (ASDE). This environment, called Sire, is intended to support the design and production of software using automated and interactive tools. Sire is to be a system that aids the software designers and programmers through the use of an integrated and flexible set of tools that are intended to reduce the amount of work that is done by humans. This reduced workload will free the system designers/implementors for more productive work. As part of this investigation, a partial implementation of Sire is accomplished. This implementation allows the user to input a system design in a specification language. Sire will then produce a correct source program shell for the user to use for the detailed implementation stage. (Author)
