This paper reports the results of an experiment in applying large-scale software engineering procedures to small software projects. Two USC student teams developed a small, interactive application software product to the same specification, one using Fortran and one using Pascal. Several hypotheses were tested, and extensive experimenal data collected. The major conclusions were as follows.
software project data, Programming languages, programming methodology, software engineering, software management
