Abstract

The SEI has been involved with the development and analysis of software process models for several years. As part of the ongoing process of technology evolution, a study has been undertaken to experimentally implement a set of proposed improvements to the process modeling techniques used by the SEI, and to evaluate the results of that experimentation. As a result of that study, a number of modifications to our techniques have been identified. These modifications enhance the support of software engineering concepts in the development and use of process models. This report describes the study and elaborates upon the advantages and disadvantages of the proposed technique improvements.
