The growing demand for information systems of ever-increasing size, scope, and complexity has highlighted the benefits that may be accrued from approaches which recognize the interrelationships between different technological strands in the field of information systems. Typical examples of these areas include: system development methods, CASE, requirements engineering, database design, and re-use. The CAiSE series of conferences provides the forum for the exchange of results and ideas within these different technological spheres from a single perspective, namely that of information systems development and management. The 1992 conference, the fourth in the series, continues this tradition. This volume collects the papers accepted for the conference, with authors from 16 countries covering a wide range of topics including: object-oriented analysis and design methods, the development process and product support, requirements engineering, re-use, design approaches, and deductive approaches.
