  • Abstract

    This repository is currently being built. It contains data from the Software Factory (SF), a service unit at a large southwestern university providing software engineering services for funded research projects and university technology spinouts. SF was led by a professional software engineer, who managed student programmers using industry-standard engineering processes and organized in formal project-based teams. It operated for 144 weeks from late 2002 to early 2005, and had 79 participants, including the manager, employees, clients and researchers. Over this time, SF worked on 31 separate projects, developing applications for the social sciences, natural sciences, and education, and for internal use (such as an activity reporting system). SF was also a social science research project intended to collect data on perceived and observable communication networks in a naturalistic organizational setting over an extended period. SF data was used in a project funded by the National Science Foundation’s Science of Organizations program, and is being deposited here per NSF requirements.
