The Board of Directors of the Great Lakes – Software Process Improvement Network (GL-SPIN) welcome those who have come to our website for the first time, and also our regular members.
We are a professional organization with more than 350 members in the Detroit area that focuses on the improvement of software engineering practices.
Please take a look through our website.  We especially would like to draw your attention to our Meeting Dates and Topics page, where at the bottom there is a link to ”Register with GL-SPIN” and that will provide you with the meeting locations for this season.

Upcoming meetings:

On Thursday, 10 April, 2014, at Oakland University, GL-SPIN and our Gold Sponsor, Broadsword, will host “Enterprise Architecture (EA) and how it can be used to design and develop complex software systems” presented by Mr. Peter Pirozzo, of Control Point Corporation.
Synopsis of Presentation:
 In the areas of software and systems engineering, what is sorely needed is a single tool that integrates all, or at least many, of the capabilities necessary to design and develop complex systems.
Mr. Pirozzo will discuss how Enterprise Architecture (EA) fits the bill, for the need just described.
Some of the features that EA provides include:
·         Business Process Modeling
·         Requirement Management
·         Mind Mapping
·         UML & SysML Modeling
·         Complete Traceability: Design to Development
·         Project Management and Gant Charts
·         Testing, Resource Tracking, Issue Tracking
·         and much more
Please RSVP “I Will Attend” to glspin97@gmail.com
