A study with the Ada development language is described that involves the parallel development of a production flight dynamics system by two teams of professional programmers. Both teams worked from the same set of requirements, with one team required to use the normal development process (FORTRAN), while the second team used Ada. Detailed data were collected during the development phases to support the analysis. The experimental approach is discussed, and some of the key results from early… CONTINUE READING
