Design methods can be ambiguous due to dierent interpretations of symbols or concepts.
This paper presents a formal semantics for the Ward/Mellor Structured Analysis Method
for Real Time systems. These semantics ensures that an unambiguous meaning can be
attributed to a particular design. Specically, it ensures that concurrent and real-time
properties of the design can be captured and analysed. This paper concentrates on the
