Nowadays it is very difficult to find integrated development environment without build management tool. However such means is absent in OS QNX4 and software developers have to write batch files to build their products. This solution usually has several disadvantages:

As a sequence, following modern methods for software development process requires more resources. In case there is no process, software quality suffers.

The goal of Make-Effect project is to reduce tedious work of software developers in build management and to simplify implementation of SWEBOK knowledge in Software Configuration Management.

Make-Effect achieves the goal due to experience of build management in successful commercial projects and due to ideas from the article Vladimir Ignatov ''Effective use of GNU Makeā'' (http://www.linuxrsp.ru/docs/gm.html).
