Most of the software developed in universities is primarily used by the developers themselves. Normally, most of this software is managed and stored on servers in the research laboratories, but since the software is generally lacking in documentation and is not developed with third-party use in mind, it tends to be used only by the original developers. It is seldom reused after the developers have graduated, and is often not in a fit state for use by third parties. Today’s information systems graduates have not been provided with sufficient education with regard to the knowledge, techniques and experience needed for the usual software development process of actual software development businesses from project planning through to execution and management (requirements analysis, development, implementation, testing, etc.) and lack the basic skills for handling actual business situations. In this paper, we report on our approach to software management using the UEC software repository to consolidate software assets, and on practical software development education based on this repository.
