HOMOGENIZATION OF MODELS TO SUPPORT MULTI-MODEL PROCESSES IN IMPROVEMENT ENVIRONMENTS

César Pardo, Francisco J. Pino, Félix García, Mario Piattini

Abstract

Since almost two decades ago, process improvement has been evolving considerably. Proof of this is the increase in the amount of models (models and fact standards) that have been able to be referenced and taken as a basis on which to carry out process improvement. The heterogeneity of available models, together with the need to solve problems from many dimensions and organizational hierarchies, lead to organizations facing problems in improvement process projects which have to deal with different models at the same time. To balance these models, this paper sets out a homogenized structure as a support mechanism for the harmonization and integration of their different characteristics.
