Abstract:

The investigators monitored a software development project written in Ada by integrating measurement into the software development process. Their goal is to identify areas of success and difficulty in learning and using Ada as a design and coding language. The underlying process and the evolving product are measured, and the resulting information characterizes this projects successes and failures. It may be used to make recommendations about training, methodology, and metrics to the Ada users community. This experience with data collection and metrics will aid in the selection of a general set of measures and measurement procedures for any software development project. The project studied involved the redesign and reimplementation, at the General Electric Company, of a portion of a satellite ground control system originally written in FORTRAN.
