Abstract

This presentation contains background information on the decision to create an Specification and Description Language (SDL) model, a discussion of the development cycle for the product development, a description of the SDL's creation, an explanation on how the SDLs are being used, a log of the types of problems encountered during this process, and a list of possible extensions to the SDL models and language. The purpose of this presentation is to show the drawbacks in not creating an SDL as part of a product's development cycle and some of the advantages to creating an SDL afterwards.
