Abstract:

Project management is clearly a part of software engineering, and its effective employment plays a major role in reducing the problems associated with delivering software within estimated time and cost. The question this paper addresses is What is the state-of-the-art in software engineering project management today. In an attempt to provide this answer, a survey of highly qualified executive managers of major U.S. aerospace corporations was conducted. This paper reports on that survey describing how these corporations manage software development projects, discusses the major differences in methods used, and how software engineering project management might be improved.
