METHODOLOGICAL GUIDELINES FOR SQA IN DEVELOPMENT PROCESS - An Approach Based on the SPICE Model

Anna Grimán, María Pérez, Luis Mendoza

Abstract

As far as international standards for promoting Software Process Quality are concerned, one of the most popular and accepted is ISO 15504 (or SPICE model). On the other hand, since a development methodology must guide the main activities in software development, it is necessary that this one fulfils some Quality Base Practices to guarantee a high-level product. The purpose of this research is analyzing a set of five methodologies widely used by developers, to identify its adjustment with respect to the aforementioned standard. This analysis allowed us: (1) determining the degree of alignment of these methodologies with respect to the SPICE model, and (2) proposing a synthesis of methodological guidelines, based on the best practices obtained from these methodologies, that supports the characteristics contained in the studied standard.
