Abstract
IN RECENT YEARS, THE ISSUES OF SOFTWARE QUALITY AND PRODUCTIVITY HAVE RECEIVED INCREASING ATTENTION AS AREAS IN WHICH THERE ARE PERVASIVE PROBLEMS. INCREASED USE OF AUTOMATED SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT TOOLS IS BY FAR THE MOST PROMISING APPROACH TO LOWERING THE COST OF SOFTWARE OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE. THIS EFFORT WILL CONCENTRATE PRINCIPALLY UPON THE DESIGN OF AN INTEGRATED SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORT SYSTEM AND ITS ASSOCIATED METHODOLOGY. THE TWO AREAS OF PRIMARY CONCENTRATION FOR THE BASELINE SYSTEM ARE REQUIREMENTS AND SPECIFICATION SUPPORT, AND TESTING SUPPORT. THE EFFORT SHALL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF INCORPORATION OF AN EXISTING REQUIREMENTS TOOL INTO THE SYSTEM, AND DESCRIBE THE TOOLS TO BE DEVELOPED FOR THE COMPLETE SYSTEM. THESE ADDITONAL TOOLS WILL BE DESIGNED TO ASSIST MANAGERS IN ASSESSING THE PROGRESS OF SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT AND TO TRACK AND CONTROL CHANGES TO THE SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS, SPECIFICATIONS, DESIGN, AND CODE.
