SOFTWARE PROCESS CONVERSION RULES IN IMPPROS - Quality Models Conversion for a Software Process Implementation Environment

Abstract

The software process conversion is a technique based on the mapping of the existing relationship between the content of the quality norms/models. The basic estimated of the conversion is to obtain making an adaptation of the software processes without the necessary effort to specify new models, guaranteeing the unicity and the consistency. For a company to reach a definitive market, its software process will have to be guided by patterns defined for a norm, and if it glimpses the penetration in other markets perhaps it is necessary the guide for other norms so different. This paper presents a process to convert software processes using quality models/norms, and a discussion of some rules used to support the execution of this process in a software development context. This process is part of a software process implementation environment, called ImPProS, developed at CIn/UFPE – Center of Informatics/Federal University of Pernambuco.
