Abstract : The objective of the CAMP program is to demonstrate the feasibility of reusable Ada software parts in a real-time embedded application area; the domain chosen for the demonstration was that of missile flight software systems. This required that the existence of commonality within that domain be verified (in order to justify the development of parts for that domain), and that software parts be designed which address those areas identified. An associated parts cataloging scheme and parts composition system were developed to support parts usage. This volume contains the results of the work performed on CAMP in the development of a software parts catalog and in the design of a prototype software parts composition system. Section II describes the results of the CAMP software parts cataloging study and the cataloging scheme recommended for CAMP. Section III contains the results of the CAMP software generation study and presents our view of the functionality of a software parts composition system. Section IV discusses the role of an expert system in the construction of a software Parts Composition System (PCS). Section V describes the particular expert system tool, the Automated Reasoning Tool (ART), used on CAMP and discusses its applicability in the software parts composition system application. Section VI discusses the major conclusions of the software cataloging and software parts composition system studies.
