This paper presents Refinement Methodology (RM) for the design of Ada? programs. The methodology combines stepwise refinement and the information hiding principle. The steps of the methodology are explained and illustrated by an example. A part of the methodology is a collection of rules by which procedures acquire parameters (called first and second rules for parameters).
