What is USINA?
Usina intends to be an "open factory of open-source software" providing to
the open-source community its expertise on software development processes in the
form of software engineering artifacts. A process
with guidelines and templates.
It is a synonym of factory in the portuguese language.
- Educational project(Software
Group of 8 (M.Sc. and
Ph.D.) computer science students from
Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, Brazil taking Software Engineering
class with the following discipline objectives:
- Apply concepts, techniques and tools of Software Engineering;
- Analyze the intersections and disconnections from Software
Engineering and Open Source Development;
- Define, create and evaluate an open source software factory (within a
real world open source software development) generating a detailed
report of the experiment.
The group extended the discipline objectives to also provide software
development process artifacts to the community acquired from its
- The same motivation of the
The usina project has a simpler scope though, it doesn't provide tools.
These two projects in the future could be complementary, but for now it
can't be for two reasons:
- hoot.tigris.org project has
been inactive and Usina's project has an schedule to accomplish;
- Usina needs to be private for its first release because of
motivation 1: it is an educational project and the 8 students need to be
evaluated. It'll be matured on the course of the discipline and, when
released to the public, it'll be more stable than it's now.
This project aims to be a software factory accepting request for proposals to
build open-source softwares using Usina's processes definition. This project aims to produce sets of "software development process artifacts"
to be used by any open-source software project and factory.
The usina's artifacts are considered stable only after execution of a real
world open-source project using its definitions. The Usina project members will accept proposals to develop open-source
software from the community to validate sets of Usina's artifacts releases and
turn it into a stable bundle.

Usina providing templates for factories
The factory artifacts will be constructed from the expertise acquired at
the Simulare project. We expect to have a closed set of artifacts to enable
start new projects quickly and in a deterministic model.
