Unformatted text preview: Design Principles Goals of Software Design b Correctness o Satisfy the requirements for the application b Robustness o A design or implementation is able to handle miscellaneous and unusual conditions o Bad data, user error, programmer error and environmental conditions b Flexibility b Reusability b Efficiency o Create designs and implementations that are as fast as required and which make use of no more than the available memory b Reliability Key Concept: B Correctness Goal: That each artifact satisfies designated requirements, and that together they satisfy all of the application’s requirements. Key Concept: B Correctness by Informal Methods Simplify and modularize designs until they convince. Sufficient Designs: Terminology and Rationale A design sufficient to implement the requirements. a correct design Sometimes called … the design must be entirely understandable It follows that … the design very modular A common way to achieve this is to make … Minimum goal:-- with variables mileage , VehicleID , value , originalPrice , and type : 1) mileage > 0 2) mileage < 1000000 3) vehicleID has at least 8 characters 4) value >= -300 ($300 is the disposal cost of a worthless automobile) 5) originalPrice >= 0 6) ( type == “REGULAR” && value <= originalPrice ) || ( type == “VINTAGE” && value >= originalPrice ) Invariants for Class Automobile Key Concept: b Interfaces -- collections of function prototypes: Make designs more understandable.
