Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to communicate status, progress, lessons learned, and results on a joint collaboration between the Software Engineering Institute SEI and Naval Air Systems Command NAVAIR. The collaboration is referred to as Team Software Process Integration TSPI. This report describes the progress and performance of extending the Team Software Process TSP to systems engineering as a pilot project with the AV8B Systems Engineering Team. Early results of applying TSPI suggest some encouraging trends. The motivation for assembling this report is to share lessons and experiences with other industry and government organizations interested in applying TSP in a non-software setting. The TSPI effort leverages the SEI Personal Software ProcessSM PSPSM and Team Software ProcessSM TSPSM research and body of practice. Projects that have adopted these methods have shown a dramatic increase in product quality as well as increased fidelity to their schedule and effort estimates. The methods are supported by a doctrine that trains and sustains performance and quality improvement in organizations.
