Description - Systems Engineering with SDL by Andreas Mitschele-Theil
"This uniquely practical guide to developing performance applicaitons doesn't just tell you how to analyse and predict performance, it demonstrates how to actually achieve performance in a product. It combines a development process view with a low level discussion on implementation details in a comprehensive and well-structured reference which every SDL developer should have on their shelf." Anders Ek, Chief Methodologist, Telelogic AB Perfomrance problems make projects fail. Unfortunately, they are often detected late in the development cycle adding considerable cost to the project and increasing time-to-market. Systems Engineering with SDL is a practical guide to designing and implementing communication systems and distributed applications, which tackles performance issues at their origin. After introducing the reader to performance engineering concepts, the book focuses on SDL and MSC. SDL is the most widely used formal description technique in the communications arena and is increasingly used in conjunction with UML to support formal design and implementation.
The book goes on to demonstrate how to deal with specific issues such as inappropriate performance requirements, unsuitable system architecture and insufficiently detailed design or implementation decisions. Aimed at experienced communication system designers and architects, this book goes beyond the basics to provide a detailed understanding of how to create high-performance real-time applications. -- Illustrates how to bring perfomrance and efficiency issues right to the forefront of the design process and ensure they are carried through to implementation. -- Guides you through the development process with reference to both waterfall and non-waterfall models. -- Provides coding guidelines to ensure implementation is smooth and trouble-free. -- Shows how SDL can be used alongside complementary languages and notations. -- Addresses project management issues in the development process. -- Provides an update on SDL-2000 and the new features that will affect your design. Andreas Mitschele-Thiel is a Research Engineer at Bell Labs, working in the Global Wireless Systems area.
He is also the Associate Rapporteur at the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) responsible for performance and time aspects of the SDL standard, so he is well positioned to write this up-to-date and comprehensive reference.
