An Essay on Universal Architecture Description Framework by Jeff O. Grady

Modern structured analysis (MSA) evolved under the leadership of Edward Yourdon, Tom Demarco, and a host of other software developers. It is a functional analysis approach recognizing computer processing in the form of bubbles that are interconnected by directed line segments that route data between processing bubbles and temporary stores to form a data flow diagram (DFD). A data dictionary defines all of the data flows and stores and a p-spec defines the computer processing that must take place in each lowest tier bubble. Requirements are derived from the p-specs and data dictionary. Derek Hatley and Imtiaz Pirbhai teamed to describe a variation on MSA that added a second analytical plane for analysis of control needs expressed in a control flow diagram (CFD) separated from the computer processing plane expressed on the DFD. After Imtiaz's death Peter Hruschka joined Derek to continue the development of what they now call a Process for System Architecture and Requirements Engineering (PSARE). Continue to read here
