    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperAcademic


    The paper aims to provide an outline of the elements which make up the architecture of a decpoupled Itembanking system. We have divided the system into four main elements;the storage of items, the generation of items, item delivery and test construction. Within the four main elements, sub elements will be identified. These will be explored with a view to defining the functionality of each element independently to allow autonomous development – fitting in with a standards based decoupled system. The paper will focus on a ‘reference’ diagram which will provide an overview of the elements and associated software, the relationships between them and the overall interaction of the system.
