Abstract : The principle objective of the study was to develop a standard set of procedures for validating non-deliverable computer software automated tools to aid the Air Force Plant Representative Offices (AFPROs) in understanding and documenting the origin of the software automated tool and how the developer actually used the tool. Approximately 900 computer software automated tools were identified and reviewed for use in development of this state-of-the-art set of standards. Five evaluation categories are included in the standard: tool identification, tool schedule, tool utilization and training, tool documentation, and configuration change control. A handbook is provided to describe the application of the software automated tool monitoring system.
