What is Supervised Compilation

The traditional test compilation of the source code (part of Harbinger's Level 2 Deposit Analysis) can be a time-consuming exercise. Supervised Compilation occurs when the escrow agent attends the vendor's workplace, confirms the build environment documentation, observes the compilation of the source code into object code, observes the working object code and then supervises the lodgement of the materials into escrow.
Often it is necessary to repeat the compilation process several times if there is discrepancy in the vendor's build instructions.
