The Team Software Process

The Team Software ProcessSM (TSPSM) has been designed to help engineering teams more effectively develop software intensive products. TSP has been used with pure software teams and with mixed teams of hardware and software engineers. TSP has also been used for both new development and enhancement and with commercial and embedded real-time systems. The languages used have included Java, C, Jovial, C++, and special fourth generation languages (4GLs). TSP can be used with teams of from 2 to 20 engineers developing or enhancing software-intensive systems. Its objective is to assist the engineers in producing quality products on their planned schedules and within their estimated costs. This presentation will provide an overview of the objectives of TSP, the teamworking problem, and the logic behind the TSP process. The relationships among the TSPSM, the PSPSM, and the CMM* will also be discussed.

SM Team Software Process, TSP, and PSP are service marks of Carnegie Mellon University.
