Abstract : A layered architecture is fundamental to the megaprogramming approach being followed by the Air Force/STARS Demonstration Project, as engineers develop the Space Command and Control Architectural Infrastructure application for NORAD and USSPACECOM. This layering strategy also applies to the Software Engineering Environment (SEE) being used to support the application development. This paper focuses on one particular SEE layer: a layer that leverages one of an organization's most valued assets - its process - and uses it as a basis for SEE integration. The activity to produce and use the PSE has yielded useful lessons learned which can guide other organizations as they pursue their own process-driven SEEs.
