What is an integrated system of software l.jpg

What is an Integrated System of Software?

  • Each application function in the program recognizes the existence of the other application functions

    • share input for all functions

    • use output of some functions as input to others

  • Each program recognizes the existence of external software

    • import/export results between TEAPAC and other programs

  • Open Architecture

    • ASCII data files for custom software
