The DLR Software Catalogue is a web application for the registration of DLR software projects. The main goal of this application is to support DLR ventures to maintain their investments in software development. The focus is the enhancement of software reusability and the stimulation of technical discussions among the developers involved in similar project.
DLR Software developers have access to the Software Catalogue via the DLR Intranet and it provides them mainly the following functionalities:
The formulation of the catalogue entries is supported by a specific user interface, which provides a rich categorization scheme to insert the properties of the software in detail. Persons entitled to enter data in the catalogue can decide whether this information will be available
Inquiries can be performed by using a specific interface, which supports different search profiles. The results of the inquiries are presented as tables with hyperlinks to the corresponding projects. The comprehensive classification scheme helps the user to easily find software development projects that have similar goals and related technologies.
The system is available to all DLR software developers and DLR Simulation and Software Technology is responsible for its maintenance and further developments.
