on these tools: (a) contributions of IMPROVE to a better support of development processes by using tools, (b) lessons learned from tool construction/integration, (c) how tool construction and modeling of development processes interact, and (d) how application-specific or general our results on tools are. The review is restricted to the academic viewpoint. The industrial review for tools – but also for other perspectives – is given in Sect. 8.3.
