Abstract : The Joint Logistics Commanders' Joint Policy Coordinating Group on Computer Resource Management (CRM) has been striving since 1977 to achieve sensible triservice policy and standards in the acquisition of computer software in weapon systems where that software is mission critical. The CRM group have broadened their area of concern to the entire life cycle of weapon system software by sponsoring an important workshop on software support (often misleadingly called software 'maintenance'). This significant workshop, called Orlando I, focused on the issues of modification of software to support mission requirements changes and to improve performance after the development of the initial computer programs and/or after the deployment of the weapon system. This volume outlines the workshop organization, summarizes the speeches of the honored guests of the workshop, and provides the complete reports of the six panels addressing the Post Deployment Software Support (PDSS) issues of government/industry workforce mix, independent verification and validation, cost of ownership, software support environments, the software change process and configuration management.
