Abstract

This paper presents some basic design concepts for the design of open distributed systems. These concepts should form the basis for the development of effective design methodologies. The paper discusses how design concepts, such as interaction, action and causality relation, can be used for modelling and structuring behaviours of functional entities in a distributed environment. The paper also addresses some consequences of the application of these design concepts such as the choice of language elements and operations to represent behaviour structure, the structuring of the design process, and the definition of design operations for behaviour refinement.
