Objektorientierte Modellierung von Automatisierungssystemen: by Jan U. Kieß

By Jan U. Kieß

Das Buch beschreibt den objektorientierten Entwurf von Software-/Hardware-Lösungen zu automatisierungstechnischen Problemstellungen, sogenannten "embedded systems". Objektorientierte Systeme bieten erhebliche Vorteile bei der Beherrschung von Komplexität, späteren Änderungen und Wartungsmaßnahmen. Ausgehend von bekannten examine- und Designmethoden werden zunächst die grundlegenden objektorientierten Konzepte vorgestellt, ausgewählte Methoden im Überblick miteinander verglichen und die speziellen Eigenschaften von "embedded platforms" beschrieben. Der Autor entwickelt dann mittels Zustands-Übergangsdiagrammen eine Methode für objektorientierte Spezifikation. Damit kann ein tragfähiger, stabiler Entwurf formuliert werden, der direkt in einer objektorientierten Programmiersprache implementierbar ist.
