Tutorial for Designer/2000
and Developer/2000


What is Designer/2000

Designer/2000 is an integrated CASE tool that supports a wide range of tasks in the area of strategy, analysis, design and code generation. It helps users design the Systems Development Life Cycle and then generate full functioning forms and reports (Dorsey and Koletzke, 1997). Like most other CASE tools, Designer/2000 also has a repository or a central storage place where much of the information pertaining to systems projects are stored in an integrated fashion. Designer/2000 has many components, each of which helps in a particular phase of the SDLC.
