Enhancing Software Lifecycle Visibility and Traceability

Teams of specialized workers develop most software. For example, one team may specialize in the requirements that describe what the software is to do. Another team may specialize in producing the software itself. Yet another team may specialize in determining whether the software meets the desired requirements. Supporting communication between all these teams is challenging: each team is focusing on their part of the system, yet needs to have awareness of the work being performed by other teams. This project will investigate what information about the software lifecycle is beneficial to provide to software developers and will determine appropriate mechanisms for providing developers access to software lifecycle information. The intern will produce new knowledge about the awareness needed by developers how awareness of software lifecycle information can be effectively provided. This new knowledge will help the organization plan future product offerings and will potentially help improve the productivity of its own developers.
