NESSTAR - Metadata Management Tool for Social Science Surveys

Nesstar software is an integrated suite of products aimed at facilitating the location and use of socio-economic, and similarly structured, data. It has been developed at the UK Data Archive in the University of Essex and the Norwegian Social Science Data Services in Bergen building upon the R&D of the EC funded NESSTAR and FASTER projects.

It allows users to browse distributed data catalogues over the Web, examine detailed information about the data (metadata), carry out simple data analysis (e.g. tabulations and graphical displays) and then download data, in whole or part, in one of a number of popular formats. The system contains registration and authentication facilities to filter access to data as necessary and a suite of data publishing and server management tools.

SRM 1.0 - Requirements Management Tool

A web enabled requirements management tool the begins at the RFP stage and ends post implementation.  The tool handles the loading of requirements at the RFP stage, enabling respondents to update and track requirement amendments and manage their response by composing solutions to each requirement.  Additionally, the tool can capture function point counts, associate use cases and cross relate requirements.  Requirements can be flagged for different levels of clarity or ambiguousness, assisting in the respondent in preparing questions, etc. for the requesting authority.   In the requirements validation phase, test plan references can be added and as the requirements are finalized, the system generates the agreement documents for signing.  The development phase includes tools for tracking changes, re-generation of requirement agreement documents and finally signoff documents.
