Build manager tools improve productivity for software builds by providing more functionality than make programs provide. Build manager tools usually include a GUI or web interface, a more convenient build process scripting language, and means for executing all or part of scripted build processes, and for logging and reporting build results. Some of the main characteristics of build manager tools are a GUI interface, increased interaction with builds, a build scripting language or interface, and built-in capabilities for build execution, logging, and reporting.
