10.3 The Modular Implementation

The design of SIESTA and its implementation have led to a very well structured software system. A strict separation of functionality into modules has been accomplished. This has great impact on its maintainability and alleviates the implementation of new capabilities. Furthermore, all components are strictly object oriented which simplifies redesigns, or changes, of system components.
