Abstract:

This paper describes an effort to adapt the AFSCM375 series and AFSCM310 series management techniques to computer program acquisition. These techniques are unique in that they provide the first standardized management approach to computer program design and development. A complete process of management procedures that has been developed for management of computer programs during definition and acquisition phases is discussed. Particular emphasis is placed on an extensive change package to AFSCM 375-1 Configuration Management During Definition and Acquisition Phases and a package of computer program data items for insertion in AFSCMAFLCM 310-1 Data Management proposed by Electronic Systems Division of AFSC. The concepts of uniform specifications, baseline management, change control, specification maintenance and accounting and standard data items as they apply to computer programs are discussed and the impact of applying these techniques to System Programs is analyzed.
