Abstract : This document describes the tools and technology examined on STARS task IS15. This report summarizes the IBM team's examination of software process representation tools and techniques. It also summarizes the examination of software process enactment tools, and techniques for implementing a process system from a well-defined system of processes such as the Cleanroom Engineering Software Development Process. The software process definition tools and techniques sections of the document: (1) examines the feasibility of porting the Software Process Management System (SPMS) from the Apple Macintosh to the IBM STARS SEE, (2) provides a SPMS Port plan and (3) discusses the use of box structures as a notation for recording aspects of software processes. The software process enactment tools and techniques sections of the document: (1) describes the KI Shell tool selected for supporting the IBM STARS Cleanroom Software Process Case Study , (2) describes the specification, design and implementation of the Cleanroom Engineering Process Assistant prototype, and (3) provides lessons learned from performing the Cleanroom Software Process Case Study. Finally the document makes recommendations for the selection of software process definition and enactment support capabilities for the IBM STARS SEE.
