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](Consult), 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.
* The Aspire Process Generator, that creates process roadmaps from
  selected recommendations.
