This paper describes current work in defining and developing a CASE
tool to support program design.
This work is proceeding alongside a
parallel effort to produce a comprehensive set of separate but
cooperating tools for use in teaching programming to undergraduate
students, based on the use of a formally defined program design
language, provisionally called MFC (Modular Pseudocode).
tool, which we call the Program Design Workbench (PDW), is intended
to help integrate the use of MPC tools through a convenient windowed
user interface, but much more importantly it will embody and enforce a
disciplined and methodical approach to modular program design.
In addition, the PDW will eventually manage a collection of design
databases and allow controlled access to and navigation between design
The prototype is being developed using the IPSYS ToolBuilder
