Abstract:

The MUDD report is a study of Navy software-development practices which is based on a series of interviews with those responsible for the development of Navy systems. The study chronicles the development of a fictional system with requirements typical of Navy tactical systems currently operational or under development. A history of the decisions made during the development of the system is first given. Following the history is an analysis of the impact of each decision on the software developed for the system and on the life-cycle of the software. Finally a set of recommendations for avoiding the pitfalls described in the report is given. The recommendations are designed to assist Navy program managers responsible for software development.
