Abstract
The Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC) is developing the required software to handle and process the data collected during ESA’s Gaia astronomy mission. DPAC consist of more than 400 scientists and engineers developing several dozens of large software packages. Such a large software development project requires adequate progress monitoring techniques. DPAC has developed IMT as a semi automated monitoring tool. In this paper we will describe the IMT system, the results it provides, and the experiences in view of usage withing the DPAC management process. Also the potential usage of IMT in other large scientific projects is discussed.
