Abstract : Physical description: 1 VHS video; 1/2 in.; col.; sd.; mono; 85 mins.; standard playback sp. ECSAM is a comprehensive object based model driven method for the analysis of Computer Based System (CBS) and their software. It is being developed at the Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) for the analysis and design of complex embedded computer systems and their software. Using this method, systems are described by two complementary models: a conceptual model and a design model. The conceptual model describes a system in terms of its conceptual structure and interfaces, its capabilities, and its dynamic behavior. It is represented by three interrelated partially overlapping views: the logical modules view, the operating modes view, and the dynamic processes view. The design model describes the systems in terms of its architecture, hardware, and software subsystems, communication lines and their properties, the human-machine interface design and implementation constraints. The ECSAM model is presented during the lecture and demonstrated using an example. Three application examples are discussed and lessons learned during their application are presented.
