  • Abstract

    This report describes a number of commonly applied methods for improving the software development process. Each software process improvement method is described by surveying existing technical literature citations. Each method description contains background information concerning how the method works. Documented experience with the method is described. Suggestions are given for implementing the method, and a list of key references is given for further information. The methods are described in the context of the SEI Capability Maturity Model, and suggestions are given to assist organizations in selecting potential improvement methods based upon their current process maturity.
