Intent: The intent of this task is to construct a deliverable that was engineered in Task III.18. If the deliverable is not executable, final documentation for engineering models is created. If an executable deliverable is developed, programming language source code is generated by translating the procedural design model.
Mechanics: For source code: Data structures and program component skeleton are created in the programming language of choice. Then each program component (module) procedural design is used as the basis for creating source code for the component.
Application of Formal Methods: structured programming
Application of CASE Tools: t.b.d.
SQA Checklist (for source code):
1. Has each program module been reviewed for completeness, consistency and correctness?
2. Have errors been found and corrected in each model?
3. Has source code that has undergone significant change been re-reviewed?
4. Are coders well-versed in the programming language or 4GL?
5. Has change control been applied as parts of the model have been baselined (large projects only)?
Do's & Don'ts
Do: Develop program components that are directly traceable to the design model.
Do: Use the elements of good programming style (see Coding references).
Don't: Use arcane or ambiguous language constructs; remember that someone will have to modify this code!
1. Whenever possible, use source code constructs that follow the procedural design as closely as possible.
2. Use indentation (or an indenting tool) to enable the code to reflect the logical structure of the procedural design.
3. Use internal program comments to add to, not simply parrot, the semantics of the code.
1. non-executable deliverables, or
2. Source code for all program components
