The Relationship Management Methodology for Hypermedia Design
Tomas Isakowitz, Arnold Kamis, Marios Koufaris
Hypermedia application design is a complex task. If anything, the abundance
of options for media, links and user-interfaces makes the design of hypermedia
applications a challenge. The focus of my research is on providing guidance
and assistance for hypermedia designers and developers. The Relationship
Management Methodology (RMM) was developed to address these issues.
Applications developed using RMM
This list will be updated. Please send me e-mail
if you are using RMM to design an application.
Tools (if left-clicking gives you garbage, right-click and
save link as...)
RM-CASE is available
for beta-testers .
If you are using MS Access to generate HTML reports for according
to RMM, you may be interested in looking at our SLICER
program. Note: this program is a perl script (slicer.pl), but has been
renamed to slicer.txt so that your browser will not try to execute it.
Save the file on your own system as slicer.pl so that you can execute it.
For use with VISIO (a very good program
to draw software charts) we have a stencil
with RMM's most used symbols, and a sample
visio file containing RMM diagrams.
