A discipline for software engineering by Watts S Humphrey ( Book )
22 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Humphrey and others have used material from this book to train professionals and students around the world in a projects-oriented software engineering course. First establishing the need for discipline in software engineering, and the benefits to practitioners of learning how to manage their personal software process, Humphrey then develops a model that they can use to monitor, test, and improve their work. Examples drawn from industry enhance the practical focus of the book, while project exercises give readers the opportunity to practice software process management as they learn it. Features: presents concepts and methods for a disciplined software engineering process; scales down industrial practices for planning, tracking, analysis, and defect management to fit the needs of small-scale program development; and shows how small project disciplines provide a solid base for larger projects

Conducting SEI-assisted software process assessments by Timothy G Olson ( Book )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "This report describes software process assessment as it is performed in organizations with the assistance of the Software EngineeringInstitute (SEI). A software process assessment is an appraisal or review of an organization's software process (e.g., software development process). The main objectives of such an assessment are to understand the state of practice in an organization, to identify key areas for improvement, and to initiate the actions that facilitate those improvements. This report is specifically addressed to the organizations and assessment team members that may be involved in an SEI-assisted software process assessment."

The role of assessment in software process improvement by David H Kitson ( Book )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "This report discusses the role of assessment in improving an organization's software capabilities; specifically, the ability of the organization's projects to consistently meet cost, schedule, and quality objectives. Software process assessments are described from both a conceptual and pragmatic point of view. Underlying concepts of software process, software process management, and software process maturity are discussed. Collectively, these constitute a framework for software process assessment and improvement."
Software process development and enactment : concepts and definitions by Peter H Feiler ( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "The scientific treatment of the software process is relatively new and, as with any new field, the initial terminology is often confusing. When terms can have a diversity of meanings, technical communication is more difficult and technological progress is constrained. This paper defines a core set of concepts about the software process. These concepts are intended to facilitate communications and to provide a framework for further definitions. The definitions focus on essential concepts; however, they do not represent a comprehensive glossary of common software process terms. Following an initial overview, this paper outlines the basic process concepts which underlie the definitions
