Artifact-based software process improvement and management: a method proposal

Marco Kuhrmann, Sarah Beecham
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 International Conference on Software and System Process - ICSSP 2014  
In this paper, we present the Artifact-based Software Process Improvement & Management (ArSPI) model that provides a unified perspective on SPI and company-wide software process management (SPM), the required  ...  When it comes to software process improvement (SPI), process engineers look for SPI methods to support process analysis, design, realization, deployment, and management.  ...  For this, ArSPI defines artifacts and processes to (1) define interfaces between the company-wide SPM and particular SPI projects, and (2) to establish the necessary management and administration processes  ...

Knowledge Creation in Improving a Software Organisation [chapter]

Pouya Pourkomeylian
2001 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
On the basis of our findings it is suggested that two types of knowledge are created in an SPI project based on completely different knowledge creation behaviour.  ...  This study shows the results of a collaborative research initiative in which an SPI project was conducted and analysed as organisational knowledge creation.  ...  Project managers and developers of three selected software development projects answered the CMM-based questionnaire.  ...

A Systems Perspective on Software Process Improvement [chapter]

Andreas Birk, Dietmar Pfahl
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science
