EPK-fix

EPK-fix: Methods and tools for engineering electronic product catalogues. An electronic product catalogue (EPC) is a computer controlled information system with multimedia product presentations and navigation facilities. The paper presents the results of the EPK-fix project for the systematic construction of EPCs. These include a software engineering process model, a high level specification language for EPCs, and an integrated set of tools supporting the entire EPC development process. The EPK-fix process model supports the classical development phases: requirements analysis, specification and design, implementation, and test. In each of the phases emphasis is put on the particular multimedia aspects, human machine interaction, production of prototypes, and the quality of the produced documents.
