Information systems security design methods: implications for information systems development
Richard Baskerville
Pages: 375-414
DOI: 10.1145/162124.162127
The security of information systems is a serious issue because computer abuse is increasing. It is important, therefore, that systems analysts and designers develop expertise in methods for specifying information systems security. The...

State assignment for hardwired VLSI control units
Bernhard Eschermann
Pages: 415-436
DOI: 10.1145/162124.162132
Finding a binary encoding of symbolic control states, such that the implementation area of a digital control unit is minimized is well known to be NP-complete. Many heuristic algorithms have been proposed for this state assignment...

The management of end-user computing: status and directions
James C. Brancheau, Carol V. Brown
Pages: 437-482
DOI: 10.1145/162124.162138
The development of computing applications by the people who have direct need for them in their work has become commonplace. During the 1980s, development of applications by “end users” accelerated and became a key management and...
