Software Engineering Laboratory
(SEL) is an organization sponsored by the NationalAeronautics and Space Administration/Goddard Space Flight Center (NASA/GSFC) and created forthe purpose of investigating the effectiveness of software engineering technologies when applied tothe development of applications software. The SEL was created in 1977 and has three primaryorganizational members:
, Systems Development Branch;
University of Maryland
,Computer Sciences Department;
Computer Sciences Corporation
, Flight Dynamics TechnologyGroup.The goals of the SEL are (1) to understand the software development process in the GSFCenvironment; (2) to measure the effect of various methodologies, tools, and models on this process;and (3) to identify and then to apply successful development practices. The activities, findings, andrecommendations of the SEL are recorded in the Software Engineering Laboratory Series, acontinuing series of reports that includes this document.The

Methods and aids for the management of software development projects are presented. Therecommendations are based on analyses and experiences of the Software Engineering Laboratory(SEL) with flight dynamics software development. The management aspects of the followingsubjects are described: organizing the project, producing a development plan, estimating costs,scheduling, staffing, preparing deliverable documents, using management tools, monitoring theproject, conducting reviews, auditing, testing, and certifying.
