Abstract A vast variety of design principles and formal descrip tion techniques (FDT’s) have been advocated to help contend with the ever increasing complexity of communication system development. Unfortunately, the relationship between these principles and FDT’s is unclear. This paper formalises a number of concepts relevant to the design principles and FDT’s used to develop communication protocols. The concepts are divided into behavioral and structural concepts. Four behavioral models and a number of associated properties are defined as a basis for comparing and integrating FDT’s. Two structural models which extend the behavioral models are then presented and several structural concepts are defined in terms of these models. We use the models and properties defined within our framework to briefly characterise a number of FDT’s.
