Ada Adoption Handbook: A Program Manager's Guide, Version 2.0.
 (October 1992)

The following is an abstract provided in the documentation for the Ada
Adoption Handbook: A Program Manager's Guide, Version 2.0.

                        ADA ADOPTION HANDBOOK:
                       A PROGRAM MANAGER'S GUIDE

 Abstract.  The Ada Adoption Handbook provides program managers with
information about how best to tap Ada's strengths and manage the
transition to fully using this software technology.  Although the
issues are complex, they are not all unique to Ada.  Indeed, many of
the issues addressed in this handbook must be addressed when developing
any software-intensive system in any programming language.  The
handbook addresses the advantages and risks in adopting Ada.
Significant emphasis has been placed on providing information and
suggesting methods that will help program and project managers succeed
in using Ada across a broad range of application domains.

 The handbook focuses on the following topics: Ada's goals and
benefits; program management issues; implications for education and
training; software tools with emphasis on compiler validation and
quality issues; the state of Ada technology as it relates to system
design and implementation; and the pending update of the Ada language
standard (Ada 9X).
