ABSTRACT

ASSET_A_255:  Software Process Tools and Techniques Evaluation Report
     This document describes the tools and technology examined on STARS
Task IS-15.  This report summarizes the IBM team's examination of
software process representation tools and techniques.  It also
summarizes the examination of  software process enactment tools,  and
techniques for implementing a process system from a well-defined system
of processes, such as the "Cleanroom  Engineering Software Development
Process".
     The software process definition tools and techniques sections of
the  document: 1) examines the feasibility of porting the Software
Process Management System (SPMS) from the Apple Macintosh to the IBM
STARS SEE, 2) provides an SPMS Port plan and 3) discusses the use of box
structures as a notation for  recording aspects of software processes. 
The software process enactment tools and techniques sections of the
document: 1) describes the KI Shell tool selected for supporting the IBM
STARS "Cleanroom Software Process Case Study", 2) describes the
specification, design and implementation of the "Cleanroom  Engineering
Process Assistant" prototype, and 3) provides lessons learned from
performing the "Cleanroom Software Process Case Study".  Finally the
document makes recommendations for the selection of software process
definition and  enactment support capabilities for the IBM STARS SEE.
