Abstract : This document provides an executive summary of the Cleanroom Software Process Case Study. It can be used to understand the purpose of the case study and its relationship to other IBM STARS Software Process Case Study activities and artifacts. This Case Study was conceived of as an approach to study, in a controlled manner, the implementation of a software process model. The Case Study had two phases planned, namely: (1) The specification and implementation of the Cleanroom Engineering Process Assistant (CEPA) prototype system to support a portion of the Cleanroom Engineering Software Development Process; and (2) The validation of the CEPA prototype system through its use, by developing a well-known computer science problem, referred to as the Host-at-Sea Buoy problem specified in the Naval Research Laboratory's 1981 Software Engineering Principles Workshop handout.
