4.5.2 Each Center shall review the contents of the process asset library to identify those practices that may have direct applicability and value to its software activities. [SWE-099]
NPR 7150.2, NASA Software Engineering Requirements, does not include any notes for this requirement.
1.2 Applicability Across Classes
Just as software developers are making greater use of off-the-shelf (OTS) software (see SWE-027) and exercising the practice of reusing previously developed software, it makes sense to reuse processes, practices, and lessons learned from prior projects and software development activities.
The OCE leads the efforts to leverage these activities and best practices from around the Agency through its establishment of the NASA Engineering Network (NEN) and, more specifically, through the use of Communities of Practice (CoP) that support the various technical disciplines practiced around the Agency. The software CoP is included in the NEN. Through its efforts, the Agency PAL has gathered and made available to members of the NASA software development community these improved practices in an easy-to-find manner. The requirement for Centers to examine the Agency PAL focuses the software communities' efforts to be more efficient in future development by leveraging proven practices, templates, processes, advanced methods, and tools.
