Identification of Effective Key Processes in Software Process Improvement Models for SMEs
Software Process Improvement (SPI) is recognized as a new era in modern software development or software engineering. SPI actually finds its actual place in software process re-engineering and giant software organizations are heading towards SPI in search of excellence. Only self sufficient and extensively matured organizations think to afford SPI initiatives. It seems miserable that these SPI initiatives are not a cup of tea for Small and Medium sized Scale Enterprises (SMEs) as Indian software industry composes a large chunk of SMEs contributing to nation's economy. Existing software process improvement standards were not written for SMEs. Scarcity of resources, budget and time hampers SMEs to implement expensive software process improvement initiatives.
