In this paper, the researchers describe the results obtained after assessing the software process activities in five small to medium sized Indian software companies. This paper demonstrates a cost effective framework for software process appraisal, specifically targeted at Indian software Small-to-Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). The framework explicitly focuses on organizations that have little or no experience in Software Process Improvement (SPI) programmes. The companies involved in this assessment have no CMMI experience prior to the work. For Indian software SME's, it has always been difficult to find the resources, both time and money, which are necessary to engage themselves properly in SPI. To alleviate this, the authors have developed a low-overhead and relatively non-invasive solution tool to support SMEs in establishing process improvement initiatives.
