ENCOMPASS, a prototype software development environment, is being constructed from components built by the SAGA project. Application of SAGA to the major phases of the lifecycle will be demonstrated through ENCOMPASS. The system will include configuration management; a software design paradigm based on the Vienna Development Method; executable specifications; languages which can be used to support modular programming, like Berkeley Pascal or ADA; verification and validation tools and methods; and basic management tools. ENCOMPASS is intended to examine many of the requirements for the design of complex software development environments such as might be used to construct the space station software. It is intended to be used as a prototype for examining many of the more advanced features that will be required in future generations of software development environments which support aerospace applications. In this paper, we describe the framework adopted within ENCOMPASS to provide automated management. We exemplify the approach using an example taken from problem tracking and change control during software maintenance.
