Three RISCOSS Platforms in summary

In the RISCOSS project, academic partners developed a core knowledge and use-case partners implemented it in their own ways.
Three broad usages of the methodology are developped now. The first one is a demonstrator; aiming at building awareness. It is associated to a simple implementation of the methodology.
The second one concerns the consumers, those who want to assess a software they want to use. It concerns the producers, those who want the software they are developing by integrating open source components. The main difference is that consumers evaluate just one software while producers evaluate combinations of components. 

The table below summarizes the main differences.
