 PROMISE Product Patterns Library (PPL)

This library offers a set of Product Patterns, an artifact intended to gather the knowledge that software engineering experts have regarding the development of any software product created during the software development lifecycle; this knowledge is presented in an accessible and easy-to-understand way, in order to promote knowledge reuse and to spread the use of software engineering best practices. Current version: 4.2


PROMISE Livelearning Platform

This tool is intended to guide the training of the human resources of an organization, as well as to ease talent's management using information technologies to transform tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge. Current version: 2.4


PROMISE Systemic Process Assets Engineering

This field is in charge of the development of tools for improving the assessment of organizations regarding their Intangible Process Assets. The main tool available at the current time is a system for the assessment of an organization through the identification of its Intangible Assets, indicators and goals, the characterization of these Intangible Assets with respect to its indicator's quality and impact, and finally the visual representation of relations and sequencial cascade causalities for attending problems of the organization. Modelling and Simulation tools and methodologies are being used for representing Process Assets and the dynamics related to these Process Assets interaction regarding strategic objectives.  (Still under design). Technologies used: Netlogo, Vensim, PHP web design, etc.

SDE: System Dynamics Elicitor

Logotipo SDEThe System Dynamics Elicitor Tool (SDE) offers students and professionals a means for representing the elements of s complex system using the System Dynamics language. The main goal of this goal is to improve the discussion about the elements of a model before starting the formal process of modelling and simulation. To be used by both inexperienced users and experts in System Dynamics, SDE is useful for generating inputs to formal discussions about potential models before making decisions about the simulation model structure. This tool is available to be used at:
