Integrated Project Team Management in a Software Development Environment
Abstract This paper presents a flexible base model to describe responsibilities and access rights of project team members for software projects. The model has been designed to be used in a highlyExpand
Validating Solutions to Major Problems in Software Engineering Project Management
TLDR
In August of 1980, this article wrote an articlel in which it hypothesized 20 major software engineering project management problems and conducted an opinion survey on a sample of the data processing industry to verify these hypothesized SEPM issues. Expand
A possibility to make project progress visible: the progress diagram within the EPOS—system
Many software projects face difficulties because their monitoring relies too strongly on subjective information from the team members. Deviations from planning are often recognized too late.OneExpand
Theory-W software project management: a case study
  • B. Boehm, Rony Ross
  • Computer Science
  • Proceedings. [1989] 11th International Conference on Software Engineering
  • 1988
TLDR
The analysis shows that Theory W and its subsidiary principles do an effective job both in explaining why the project encountered problems, and in prescribing ways in which the problems could have been avoided. Expand
A spiral approach to Software Engineering Project Management Education
TLDR
A "spiral approach" was used to provide for the parallel acquisition of management knowledge and experience, while building on recently acquired skills in software technology and developing confidence through the successful development of a software product. Expand
Improving software testing in large data processing organizations
TLDR
This paper describes a relatively low-cost investment undertaken by the Information Services Group of Chemical Bank for testing improvement and presents results of the program to date. Expand
A quality assurance reference model for object-orientation
Software quality assurance for object-oriented information systems development is the issue dealt with here. A Qual ity Assurance Reference Model is proposed based on the Revised Spiral Life CycleExpand
Evaluation Of PMI's Risk Management Framework And Major Causes Of Software Development Failure In Software Industry
TLDR
Details programs analysts must create a better knowledge of the particular measurements of software package project risk as well as how they may have an impact on task performance to reduce the high failure rate of software projects. Expand
A realistic, two-course sequence in large scale software engineering
TLDR
A two semester, senior level sequence of courses in large scale software development keyed upon the element of realism by having an actual user supply an actual project. Expand
The Role of Measurement in ISEEs
TLDR
The improvement-oriented software development model which has been developed as part of the TAME project is presented, and it is suggested that future ISEEs should be instantiations of this model. Expand

Major Issues in Software Engineering Project Management
TLDR
A major survey of individuals from all areas of the computer field to determine the general consensus on SEPM problems and indicated research directions which, if followed, the respondents believed would lead to solutions for these problems. Expand
Corporate Level Software Management
  • J. Cooper
  • Computer Science
  • IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering
  • 1978
TLDR
Software management is considered from the corporate headquarters viewpoint and standardization is presented as the most effective management device available at the corporate level for enhancing the overall software posture. Expand
Guest Editorial Software Management: We Must Find a Way
  • R. Merwin
  • Computer Science
  • IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering
  • 1978
TLDR
The data processing landscape is littered with examples of major software developments which faltered and then expired, so it is unsurprising that this situation should exist, after almost a quarter-century of experience with implementing these systems. Expand
The Software Life Cycle—A Management and Technological Challenge in the Department of Defense
TLDR
The Department of Defense has undertaken a two part effort to accelerate both near-term and long-term improvements in software development for weapons system applications. Expand
Quantitative evaluation of software quality
TLDR
The study reported in this paper provides for the first time a clear, well-defined framework for assessing the often slippery issues associated with software quality, via the consistent and mutually supportive sets of definitions, distinctions, guidelines, and experiences cited. Expand
The Mythical Man-Month
TLDR
The author will list some of the assertions in the book and invite dispute or support from the audience in this public discussion of the published book. Expand
