These proceedings contain the papers presented at the 5th IFAC/IFIP/GI/GMA Workshop on Experience with the Management of Software Projects (MSP '95) held in Karlsruhe, Germany, 27-29 September 1995.

Emphasis was placed on technical aspects, but new aspects of the software life cycle also appeared. Among the technical issues, it would seem that test methods are seeing a revival and simulation and modelling techniques are starting to be used for the project management process proper. Within the software development life cycle, re-use and reverse engineering have become established components and reports on experience with the application of formal approaches are becoming more distinct. An important topic covered was configuration mangement - the more common it becomes for software to be developed as a system of components having individual life cycles rather than as one consistent piece, then the more important it is to have methods for administering such components separately whilst still enabling the designer to build consistent systems out of them.

The workshop overall was rated better than average by participants and a good percentage of papers were recommended for publication in a journal. It can also be said that the workshop reflected the improvement in technology transfer time in software and the coming of age of software engineering in general.
