Short for Computer Aided Software Engineering, a category of software that provides a development environment for programming teams. CASE systems offer tools to automate, manage and simplify the development process. These can include tools for:
  • Summarizing initial requirements
  • Developing flow diagrams
  • Scheduling development tasks
  • Preparing documentation
  • Controlling software versions
  • Developing program code

Various companies offer CASE software capable of supporting some or all of these activities. While many CASE systems provide special support for object-oriented programming, the term CASE can apply to any type of software development environment.
