NS Development Tools
NSX has developed a suite of development tools to assist organizations during the systems development process of information systems based on Normalized Systems Theory.
The NS Modeler allows the software analysts and designers to draw in an interactive way the various models of the software systems. More specifically, the analyst is able to draw data models, similar to Entity Relationship Diagrams, and workflows as state machines.
Based on the data and flow models, the NS Expanders will expand the various elements, and generate the software skeleton of the information system. This application skeleton is highly evolvable, as it is guaranteed to be free of combinatorial effects.
NS Prime Radiant
The NS Prime Radiant provides a unique overview and control over the various information systems, decoupling the four dimensions of variability: analysis models, skeleton versions, utility frameworks, and custom craftings. Moreover, it is the Prime Radiant who unlocks the continuous regeneration and rejuvenation that leads to the unseen evolvability of NS software.
Prime Radiant at Star’s End
The Prime Radiant @ Star’s End has been created as a central focal point for collaboration and knowledge transfer between NS developers across various organizations. It provides a structured view into the entire landscape of NS information systems.
The NS Foundation contains a structured and comprehensive overview of documentation, ranging from programming interfaces and conventions, all the way to deeper NS knowledge and wisdom. The documentation provides specific guidance for NS analysts, designers, application developers, testers, and tool developers.
The NS Library is a reference library in the true sense of the word, as it contains a structured representation of all available NS information systems. This reference material consists of both data and flow models, and an overview of custom features and code.
Moreover, the library generates a number of standard reports for the various models and custom codebases, both at certain points in time, as well on their evolution during periods of time.
