Task specification and management is presented as one aspect of a complete model for managing the VLSI design process. I describe the appropriate role of tasks in the design process, their hierarchical specification, including a detailed description of the grammar used, how they are invoked, and then present a prototype implementation integrated into the U. C. Berkeley CAD environment. The task management model presented includes a Template Manager for handling static operations on task specifications, called templates, and a Tool Navigator for dynamic operations including running, previewing, suspending, and resuming tasks.
