We recommend the use of SDL as a design method for Real Time Software.
You can get more information at http://www.tdr.dk/public/SDL/
If you are interested, I can mail to your attention a copy of our
Method Guideline for the design of real time applications using OMT,
SDL and MSC. We can also email a postscript version of this document.
You can also find information on our ObjectGeode toolset at
This tool supports requirement analysis, graphical design for data,
architecture, communication and state machines, documentation
generation, simulation and code generation for VxWorks and other
