Abstract

Software process automation is a new technology with significant promise. However, practical experience in the field is still limited and there appears to be a variety of potential barriers to its use. The objective of this empirical study is to document current practical experience and to identify what works and what does not. Lessons learned from the study will be disseminated to help others who wish to implement the technology. This report documents results from the first phase of the study in which 14 in-depth interviews were conducted. Personnel interviewed were involved in projects in which process-centered environments were developed and adopted.
