APICS - A Process for Efficient and Effective Integration of Component Based Software



Start date:


End date:


The research in Component Based Software Engineering has described requirements on individual components and the system aspects related to combination of components. However, the process for integrating components requires additional capabilities and characteristics to secure that the assembly of parts results in the expected product or system. These characteristics include both process oriented attributes such as review coverage and product oriented attributes such as performance.The goal of this project is to investigate and improve current practices in the integration of systems built on Component Based Software. The main research goal is to propose and evaluate integration processes for systems, with focus on real time systems
