"SPRUCE - Bridging the Gap Between Research and Practice" Web Portal for the Collaborative Engineering of Software Intensive Systems Producibility Challenge Problems and Solutions: ( A research initiative of the Air Force Research Laboratory)
Presenters: Patrick Lardieri and Rick Buskens, Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Laboratories If you are a program engineer/manager in a software intensive system development, or if you are a researcher working in software and systems engineering, this is an event that you cannot afford to miss. Learn how engineers and researchers now have access to the tools needed to reach out to each other, define and refine challenge problems, develop solutions to these challenge problems, and conduct experiments, all with the goal of helping DoD R&D through open collaboration, thanks to the SPRUCE project.
Come learn about SPRUCE and how you can get involved.
SPRUCE (Systems and Software Producibility Collaboration and Experimentation Environment) is an open web portal to bring together DoD software developers, users, and software engineering researchers by collaborating on specifying and solving software producibility challenge problems.
SPRUCE emphasizes collaboration around well-defined challenge problems with project-specific artifacts representative of DoD projects, and experimentation for reproducing the stated problems, establishing benchmarks and evaluating solutions. In this interactive demonstration and presentation, we will illustrate SPRUCE's key features, including self-organizing communities of interest (CoIs), dynamically evolving challenge problems with accompanying artifacts, and built-in experimentation facilities to reproduce the problems and evaluate solution benchmarks. Finally, we demonstrate early experiences and results with representative CoIs and challenge problems.
Mr. Patrick Lardieri and Dr. Richard Buskens are with Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Laboratories.
Mr. Lardieri, Manager of Distributed Application Technology Research, has over ten years experience in engineering, implementing, designing, testing, demonstrating, and coordinating prototypes in a research and development environment.
Dr. Buskens, Manager of Advanced Software Technology Research, has over 20 years of advanced and applied research experience, primarily focused on software producibility activities, and a proven track record for carrying innovative research ideas from concept stage through to product-quality prototypes. SPRUCE is funded by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) and supported and managed by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL).
