Computer Aided Software Engineering (CASE) tools offer many benefits for developers building large-scale systems. As spiralling user requirements continue to drive system complexity to new levels, CASE tools enable software engineers to abstract away from the entanglement of source code, to a level where architecture and design become more apparent and easier to understand and modify. The larger a project, the more important it is to use a CASE tool in software development.
As developers interact with portions of a system designed by their colleagues, they must quickly seek a subset of classes and methods and assimilate an understanding of how to interface with them. In a similar sense, management must be able, in a timely fashion and from a high level, to look at a representation of a design and understand what's going on. For these reasons, CASE tools coupled with methodologies give us a way of representing systems too complex to comprehend in their underlying source code or schema-based form.
Select Business Solutions has been developing and building these CASE tools since the late 1980s, as well as developing processes and methods to support high quality application development.
