Hello everyone,

a thesis regarding software process modeling, EPF, SPEM, methodologies etc.
is available at

I'll be happy to hear any comments on the subject.


The abstract of my thesis:

The software development industry is constantly evolving. The rise of the
agile methodologies in the late 1990s, and new development tools and
technologies require growing attention for everybody working within this
industry. The organizations have, however, had a mixture of various
processes and different process languages since a standard software
development process language has not been available.

A promising process meta-model called Software & Systems Process Engineering
Meta- Model (SPEM) 2.0 has been released recently. This is applied by tools
such as Eclipse Process Framework Composer, which is designed for
implementing and maintaining processes and method content. Its aim is to
support a broad variety of project types and development styles.

This thesis presents the concepts of software processes, models, traditional
and agile approaches, method engineering, and software process improvement.
Some of the most well-known methodologies (RUP, OpenUP, OpenMethod, XP and
Scrum) are also introduced with a comparison provided between them. The main
focus is on the Eclipse Process Framework and SPEM 2.0, their capabilities,
usage and modeling.

As a proof of concept, I present a case study of modeling OpenMethod with
EPF Composer and SPEM 2.0. The results show that the new meta-model and tool
have made it possible to easily manage method content, publish versions with
customized content, and connect project tools (such as MS Project) with the
process content. The software process modeling also acts as a process
improvement activity.
