Title: Amused: a multi-user software environment diagnostic
Author: Foltman, Mary Ann
Abstract: As software projects grow in size and complexity, many individuals take over the responsibilities for one project, creating a potential for new errors in the development process. Software version inconsistency, unfamiliarity with the tools used, and software tool restrictions are but some of the problems encountered in a multi-programmer environment. These problems are not always self-evident to the programmer and may require a dedicated software support representative or experienced programmers to assist. These problems can be reduced through the development of a multi-user software environment diagnostic expert system, AMUSED (A Multi-User Software Environment Diagnostic). The AMUSED expert system is designed for use by programmers responsible for creating the executable software releases on a standard copier / duplicator project. Project source code is transported to a common workstation, and linked together with other programmers' code through a linking tool. AMUSED's diagnostic help assists (a) the link process that will be used to create the executable code from the source files, (b) the retrieval of source files from remote sites to the link workstation, and (c) the use of any interfacing connections between the source modules.
