  author={Frank E. McGarry and Rose Pajerski and Gerald T. Page and Sharon Waligora and Victor R. Basili and Marvin V. Zelkowitz},
The Software Engineering Laboratory (SEL) was established in 1976 for the purpose of studying and measuring software processes with the intent of identifying improvements that could be applied to the production of ground support software within the Flight Dynamics Division (FDD) at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)/Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). The SEL has three member organizations: NASA/GSFC, the University of Maryland, and Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC). The… CONTINUE READING
