Abstract:

Orlando II was the fourth in a series of biennial workshops focussing on relevant software support issues pertinent to Mission Critical Computer Resources MCCR. The previous workshops, Monterey I II and Orlando I, were instrumental in the identification of issues that could be addressed in Department of Defense standards for the development of mission critical systems. One of those issues dealt with how to handle the problems associated with Post Deployment Software Support PDSS. The central theme of Orlando II was Solving the PDSS Challenge. Workshops selectees were assigned to one of eight panels. Each panel was assigned one particular PDSS problem area, and tasked with developing solutions. The panels conclusions reinforced the fact that more cooperation is needed among the Services. Specific panel topics were as follows PDSS Planning During Development, Forecasting PDSS Resource Requirements, Software Change Process, PDSS Standards, PDSS Management Indicators and Quality Metrics, Human Resources in PDSS, Software Technology Transition, and MCCR security. This volume presents a summary of the issues and recommendations of the eight workshop panels and is taken directly from the products provided by the panels without editorial comments or reinterpretations.
