Software Process Improvement in Multimodel Environments

Andre Ferreira, Ricardo Machado
2009 2009 Fourth International Conference on Software Engineering Advances  
Process improvement models are used to improve product quality. In recent years the combination of different improvement models is increasing.  ...  The main challenge in these environments is the interoperability of chosen models. An incorrect integration approach diminishes efficiency and effectiveness on applying these models.  ...  Primarily and related to software and related engineering technologies the Quality Attribute Workshop and the Attribute-Driven Design [27] will be studied.  ...
