Project Overview

The goal of the project SPI (Software Process & Infrastructure) is to provide to the development projects of the LCG:

  • basic environment for physics SW development
  • general scientific libraries and class libraries
  • software development tools
  • documentation tools and document templates
  • compiler expertise
  • support activity necessary to ensure that a common grid-enabled environment is available at all grid sites

The reason for the Software Process & Infrastructure project is to have consistency and homogeneity in the development of the different packages of the LCG Application Area.
