Abstract : Software development has evolved to be an organized discipline involving a team of programmers developing large complex systems. The future success of software engineering is inextricably woven with the success of Integrated Computer Aided Software Engineering (ICASE) tools, which automate the entire life cycle process. ICASE tools allow standardized processes to be put in place to reduce costs, and large projects to be maintained with a high level of quality. This study provides background on the development of ICASE tools and how they enhance the software development process. A presentation of the major considerations behind the use of different ICASE tools is made, along with a cross-section of the ICASE products currently available on the market
