A method for describing software designs, developed by IEEE Standards Project 1016, is presented. The method presumes that a design is completely described when the information needs of each design user are satisfied. The minimum set of design users and their specific information requirements are discussed. An information model is used to describe the needed design information through a set of 15 standard design entity attributes. To simplify the access and assimilation of design information, an organization of the entity attributes into four distinct design views is proposed.
