Abstract:

This report contains the results of a survey conducted in 1977 and 1978 on how the US Aerospace Industry manages its software development projects. The sample of the US Aerospace Industry surveyed was those companies who had a membership in the AIAA Technical Committee on Computer Systems. These committee members represented 47 major corporations or major corporate subdivisions and occupied top positions in software management within their firms. The survey used a questionnaire containing 225 numbered questions on project management. By using multiple choice-multiple answer questions, approximately 1,328 separate responses were possible. The survey was divided into three parts. Part One dealt with defining the organization, management structure, and philosophy of the firm. This part was intended to be answered by top management to provide the backdrop against which the individual projects would be viewed. Part Two concerned individual software development projects and was intended to be completed by the project manager. Part Three was designed to obtain the opinions and perceptions of software development project managers on major issues and major problems of software engineering project management.
