When software organizations adopt several best practices models into one single environment the number of activities and processes tends to increase. Managing effectively a large and complex system of processes requires process modeling capabilities at higher levels of abstraction. This paper presents a modeling approach for software process design and implementation to deal with the increasing size and complexity of large systems of processes. A model based on an extension of UML 2.0 Component

A transition mechanism using Little-JIL process programming language is also proposed to support the refinement of a process architecture to a process implementation.
