  • Abstract

    This technical report has been superseded by CMU/SEI-92-TR-029. Please refer to the new page for information about this report.

    The ADA Adoption Handbook provides program managers with information about how best to tap ADA's strengths and manage this new software technology. Although the issues are complex, they are not all unique to ADA. Indeed, many of these issues must be addressed when using any language for building sophisticated systems. The handbook addresses the advantages and risks inherent in adopting ADA. Significant emphasis has been placed on providing information and suggesting methods that will help program and project managers succeed in adopting ADA across a broad range of application domains. The handbook focuses on the following topics: program management issues including costs and technical and program control; ADA's goals and benefits; software tools with emphasis on compiler validation and quality issues; the state of ADA technology as it relates to system engineering; the application of special purpose languages; issues related to mixing ADA with other languages; possible productivity benefits resulting from software reuse; and implications for education and training.
