Elements--An Object-Oriented Approach to Industrial Software Development
Gerd Baumann
Michal Mnuk

Conclusions

In this article we discussed basic guidelines for building a sophisticated object-oriented modeling environment based on a knowledge base containing predefined components. We presented the package Elements that implements the core functionality of such a system that is suitable to be used for both industrial and mathematical applications. We demonstrated that combining the computational power of computer algebra with object-oriented paradigms provides a firm foundation for speeding up the work flow in industrial modeling processes. The soundness and consistency of the stored information ensures its practical applicability in a variety of settings.
