Software Production and Maintenance Management Support

Objective

The SPMMS project aimed to design and implement a system supporting all management activities in the software life-cycle.
The SPMMS system was to be capable of monitoring the distributed engineering environment to determine the status of the development process. One of the most important requirements of the system was to be its adaptability to different management methods.The project planned to reach this objective by building a basic generic SPMMS kernel which is easily customisable, possibly using a rule-based approach.
The project was to design and implement a system supporting all management activities in the software life cycle, capable of monitoring the distributed engineering environment to determine the status of the development process, and adaptable to different management methods. Results comprise: specification of the system; first prototype of the semantic data model; complete architectural design. Progress was made on mapping simplified work breakdown schedules onto the semantic data model. A subset of an organisation structure was successfully mapped and demonstrated. The project produced a prototype for the development of an information system to support management activities in the software product life cycle, constructed in Carnegie representation language (CRL). Implementation of the prototype in a portable common tool environment (PCTE) was completed. This included a semantic data model for software development projects in order to provide a conceptual schema of the project process. Functionalities have been implemented and demonstrated in a PCTE.

Exploitation
The SPMMS project contributed to the common data schema and the vocabulary used by several ESPRIT management tools projects.
The project is expected to contribute to the PCTE by providing management tools operating on a data schema in a distributed PCTE system.
