    Many organisations, including some of the largest ones, have moved away from `all-singing all dancing' CASE solutions to `budget' CASE tools providing support for only a fraction of their total software development activities. Other organisations are focusing their efforts on the software process and how to increase its maturity. Key issues for them are how it can be defined, measured, improved an... View full abstract»

  • Methods for software development with CASE-avoiding mind-set traps

    Some problems of system modelling and CASE technology are examined. In particular, the paper examines our tendency for us to continue to think in the same way (conceptual inertia), even when new approaches are called for. This can cause us to behave inappropriately, because we are not aware of the required change (a `mind-set trap'). In particular, the underlying paradigm used in system developmen...

  • Quality, process maturity and CASE

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):2.1 - 2.2

    Product quality depends upon processe quality: it is the process that delivers the required attributes, and as soon as we start asking any interesting questions about a software product we immediately have to ask questions about the process. Against this background, the author asks: what is the relationship between process maturity and process quality; and what is the role of CASE in promoting pro... View full abstract»

    Discusses the Software Process Maturity Model (SPMM). Its notions of process improvement and statistically based control of the main production activities are seen as the base concepts underlying the total quality movement, with its stress on continuing improvement against measured standards of achievement. Unfortunately the central focus of the TQ movement has excluded or been indifferent to many... View full abstract»

    Surveys of CASE users show that software development quality and productivity have improved as a result of CASE (Wijers and van Dort, 1990, Stobart et al., 1991 and Aaen et al., 1992). However, these results are based on the perception of IS managers and have yet to be supported by figures. What is required is a change in organisation supported by a change in technology. The SEI Software Process M... View full abstract»

    With the increase in organisational maturity, the software process is institutionalised through policies, standards and organisational structures. The question is how does CASE fit in with this growing maturity. In other words, what CASE strategies should be developed and what impact will they have on the organisational structures. The author considers how one should develop a CASE strategy View full abstract»

    AT&T ISTEL has been operating a software process improvement programme. This paper focuses on the role which our in-house corporate CASE has played in enabling that programme to meet its goals. As the programme is business-critical and its goals timeless, a critical success factor for the CASE tool has been its ability to continuously improve as the business processes it supports need to impro...
