A Formal Model for Software Project Management.

Liu, Lung Chun; Horowitz, Ellis

In: IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, Vol. 15, No. 10, pages 1280-1293. October 1989.

Abstract: A formal model, DesignNet, is developed for the description and management of large-scale software development projects. The DesignNet model uses AND/OR structure operators to describe the breakdown of the development work components and Petri nets to describe the relationships and parallelism between project activities, resources, and output. A `token' propagation process enables the collection of time-dependent information at different project structure levels.

Keywords: software project management; software engineering; DesignNet.
