Empirical evaluation of software lifecycle management tools

  • Project code:ESEAM
  • Schedule:01/2021 - 12/2024
  • Status:active


  • Empirically evaluation of the lifecycle management software standard known as Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC)*
  • The evaluation demo is a fleet controller in a open air warehouse concept at TAU test site
  • The OSLC will be used when implementing the parts of this demo concept
  • Evaluation data is collected during and after the development work
  • Implementation participants from the TAU research group and volunteer students.


  • Knowledge on how the OSLC can be used in mobile machine automation development
  • Practical pros and cons for this industry.
  • Protocols/practices for testing different kinds of automation software as a side product
  • Provides a reference case on typical lifecycle management and systems engineering practices.

*The OSLC is an interoperability standard for connecting different system lifecycle management software solutions, such as JIRA, rational DOORS, Polarion, Perforce, and such.

ESEAMM project is a doctoral thesis work in Doctoral School of Industry Innovations (DSII) at Tampere University.
