Systems for version management have been in existence for some time, yet no system provides the complete range of servicesneeded to control the versions and configurations of a complex design as it evolves over time. The authors have been developinga system, called a version server, to provide just these services. It supports an object -oriented model for organizing designdata and provides operational mechanisms for controlling the design's evolution, such as object check-in/checkout and a validationsubsystem.
