Systematic software technology transfer

Transferring new technologies into a software organization can be expected to change the software processes used within this organization. It is unrealistic to expect project members to manage such changes on the fly and still fulfill their product-oriented project goals. Systematic software technology transfer requires a software engineering model which is based on sound scientific and engineering principles and clearly distinguishes between the roles of experience building versus application development on the one hand, and process engineering versus product engineering on the other hand.
