relevance of Jackson System Development and CSP

Recommended Posts

The design approaches used for software systems is a very broad question... A flight controller will be approached in a very different way to a flash game.

I've never heard of JSD, and I've only heard of CSP due to researching background works in concurrency - I've not seen either of them actually used.

Most places that I've worked at have used [i]informally specified[/i] approaches to design, or have followed internal (company) processes that don't have formal names.

I got to study Jackson System Development and Warnier/Orr diagrams in college and I thought they were worthless. They apply only to trivial situations, where you actually don't need any help with design. I have never heard of any company that uses them, and I would never work for one that did.
