WINTER 1996 PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SEMINAR
Software Process Definition
Saturday, March 2, 1996, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
David Sarnoff Research Center, Auditorium
Cost: $90 (Princeton ACM or North Jersey SPIN members), $100 (non-members)
This seminar will focus on the process definition needs of organizations with ongoing software process improvement efforts. Defined processes are needed for compliance with the SEI Capability Maturity Model for Software (CMM), ISO-9001, ISO-9000-3, etc. The seminar's orientation is toward those who are working to define and install improved software processes in key areas; this work often occurs following completion of an appraisal/assessment, development of action plans, and establishment of process action teams or similar groups. This seminar will provide concrete knowledge and practical guidance in accomplishing process definition activities.
The seminar will first provide motivation and a conceptual foundation for process definition: covering process management principles, process engineering concepts, and process design considerations. The seminar will then address key issues in process definition, including process models and other process representations, information content guidelines for definition of enactable processes, a recommended process for developing processes, and tools and techniques for evaluating processes for appropriate content and for compliance with the CMM. The seminar will conclude with brief consideration of emerging research in this area, and of the applicability of this material to process improvement and reengineering outside the domain of software (e.g., business process reengineering).
+ Process Management Concepts + Process Engineering and Implementation + Process Definition Overview + Content Recommendations for Process Definition + Process Development Process + SEI Process Improvement Model + Emerging Research and Broader Applicability
This seminar is geared toward software developers, software development managers, and quality managers, both from large and small software development organizations. Attendees should have some experience with software development and an interest in improving their organization's software process.
