Abstract:

The Software Engineering Process Office SEPO was formed at the Naval Ocean Systems Center in late 1988. SEPOs charter is to improve the software development processes from a Level 1 on the Software Engineering Institutes SEI Maturity Model to a Level 3 and above. One major effort in attaining a Level 3 is the establishment of a centerwide software estimation process. This paper describes SEPOs methods and progress in establishing a software estimation process at NOSC and a brief description of the process.
