Software Process Improvement

Project Details


The research effort on software process improvement (SPI) has been ongoing since 1995. A large, national research project from 1997 to 1999 made a significant contribution to launching a common interest in SPI within the group. Since the beginning, this research has involved nearly all group members and this has been furthered through a major project from 2003 to 2006 on processes improvement and processes knowledge.The research was initiated with the desire to first study to what extent the largely American maturity process models were applicable in Danish software organisations and then revise these to be useful in non-American contexts. The research has gradually shown that maturity process models and process measurement are not significant for software process improvement. Many other issues, however, are of significant importance.
