RTP - Software Process Improvement
Welcome to the Research Triangle Park Software Improvement Process Network,
RTP-Spin. This is the initial publication of the RTP-Spin home page. The
purpose of this home page is to serve as a regional clearinghouse of information
related to software engineering and the software development process.
The RTP-Spin thanks North Carolina State University, Dr. Mladen A. Vouk,
and his students for sponsoring our organization with a hosting site.

Originally the organization was formed as the North Carolina Quality Assurance
Discussion Group, NCQADG. The NCQADG had the same purpose as the current
organization. With the advent of the national effort to improve software
and its development process the Software Engineering Institute, SEI was
commissioned by Congress. Eventually a loose network of organizations was
formed under the National
SPIN . The advantage of affiliation with a national network having
the same purpose was readily recognized. In 1994 the national affiliation
was made. RTP-Spin also affiliates with other regional organizations having
similar interest in software engineering.
RTP-Spin organization structure is described in the RTP-Spin
Charter. Primary activities of the RTP-Spin include general
meetings, steering committees, and information
