Abstract: A study on software engineering practices in Singapore was conducted in 1995. The study was conducted to gain an insight into the extent to which software engineering practices have been adopted by organisations in Singapore, the benefits these organisations have realised, the problems they face in implementing these practices and their perceptions on issues prevalent in the software engineering field. In the context of the study, "software engineering practices" refer to the models, techniques and tools used in the software engineering process. The study was conducted through a self-administered mail questionnaire survey sent to a number of organisations in Singapore. A total of 54 organisations responded to the survey. The results showed that the majority of organisations had adopted a formal system development methodology but relatively few were using software engineering tools. The respondents' perceptions towards the benefits and problems of implementing software engineering practices validated to a large extent the findings of other practitioners and researchers in the field. © 1998 Elsevier Science Inc.
