Software Engineering: Production Aspects
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 123)


S/E/TEC is a software engineering environment supporting the software producers' activities as well as management activities. The main components of S/E/TEC are the project model, the production techniques, the management techniques, the product patterns, the development standards, the project library and the terminal system PET/MAESTRO.

The conceptuel basis of S/E/TEC and the methodological frame for the other components is the project model. It defines the phases, activities, products, and management actions of software projects. The production techniques cover the whole software production process from analysis and definition through design, implementation, integration and installation to operations and maintenance. Product patterns and development standards give guidelines for the structure of the products and possible ways to establish them. Management gets support from tools for effort estimation and control, priority planning, and quality assurance steps. All development and management documents are collected and administered in the project library. The software development terminal system PET/MAESTRO provides computer support for most of the production and management techniques and is a suitable basis for the project library.
