Eureka software factory

Computer-aided system for the production of software
(software production environment)

ESF will prepare the foundation to establish Software Factories in Europe: industrial-scale facilities where the software production process will be subject to: - effective management control, and - effective capital investment. ESF is focused on two enabling technologies for the production of a software factory: - process support, the use of programmable models of factory activity to make the complex (and up to now mostly invisible) workflow of software development teams subject to both accurate planning and continued fine -tuning; - software componentry, the use of abstract interfaces and environment standards (software bus) to enable "plug-in" access to multiple system platforms, thus encouraging both more generic software design and more frequent software re-use of tools made by different manufacturers.
