Software design is the process of defining software methods, functions, objects, and the overall structure and interaction of your code so that the resulting functionality will satisfy your user's requirements. It is the method of creating a representation of the complete software components and behavior before implementing the actual software. You need to follow design principles, which will lead you to develop more robust, maintainable & flexible software. Now you might think: "I have never used designing but I have developed many software and guess what? Well, congratulations, but development is not just about making the software.
There is substantial evidence that AI technology can meet the requirements of the large potential market that will exist for knowledge-based software engineering at the turn of the century. In this article, which forms the conclusion to the AAAI Press book Automating Software Design, edited by Michael Lowry and Robert McCartney, Michael Lowry discusses the future of software engineering, and how knowledge-based software engineering (KBSE) progress will lead to system development environments. Specifically, Lowry examines how KBSE techniques promote additive programming methods and how they can be developed and introduced in an evolutionary way.
