Advanced artefact management system (ADAMS) is an artefact-based process support system for the management of human resources, projects and software artefacts. This system puts great emphasis on the artefact life cycle by associating software engineers with the different operations that can be performed on a given artefact. Managing the quality of software artefacts is considered as one of the main issues. To this end, ADAMS integrates web-based artefact inspection tool (WAIT), a web-based system implementing a distributed inspection process. A case study has been accomplished to evaluate both the integration of WAIT in ADAMS and the provided quality management support. The main result of this empirical investigation is that the integrated system provides an effective support for the management of the quality of software artefacts.
