The C.C method leads you to achieve the following aims:
1) to discover existing processes and systems
2) to design new processes and systems
3) to define the IT software structures for those processes and systems that are to be supported by IT
A brief history and introduction to the C.C method
The C.C method has been in development for 25 years.
There is a strong mathematical background, and a strong managerial approach behind the C.C method and the Craft.CASE tool. Simulation functionality is based on the state-machine theory. The Craft.CASE tool guides the modeller to create consistent models through constraint and validity checks, while drawing and simulating diagrams. The possibility to interconnect data through various modelling stages makes Craft.CASE context-sensitive.
The C.C method is so called "object-oriented". In the terms of the method, this means that you take notice of two crucial concepts: elements of the real world (subjects) and their behaviour; further we refer these concepts as to "lanes". The basic idea is that each subject (like "invoice" or "accountant") has a certain, specific, behaviour. The presence of information in one lane suggests the presence of corresponding information in the other lane.
