Abstract

The Team Software Process (TSP) Performance and Capability Evaluation (PACE) process provides an objective way to evaluate software development organizations using data collected during TSP projects. This guide describes the evaluation process and lists the steps organizations and programs must complete to earn a TSP-PACE certification. It also describes how data gathered during the evaluation is used to generate a five-dimensional profile summarizing the results of the evaluation.
