Welcome to aSPIRE!
==================

aSPIRE - *A*dvanced *S*oftware *P*rocess *I*mprovement *Re*pository - is
a knowledge base of software development practices and recommendations
derived from empirical research carried out at Lero, the Irish Software
Engineering Research Centre.

Components
----------

aSPIRE comprises three components:

-   The aSPIRE Knowledge Base, for which this page is the entry point;
-   The [aSPIRE Advisor](advisor/consult.html), that derives relevant
    recommendations from the Knowledge Base to address specific
    situations;
-   The [aSPIRE Simulator](simulator), that can show how the
    recommendations and practices in the aSPIRE Knowledge Base would
    affect a hypothetical or actual real-world development effort.
