A process is not a static entity. Improving the quality and reducing the cost of products are fundamental goals of software engineering discipline. As the qualities are determined by the process to satisfy the objectives of quality improvement and cost reduction, the software process must be improved. Now-a-days it has been widely accepted that the quality of software highly depends on the process that is carried out in an organization. As part of the effort to support software process engineering activities, the research on software process modeling is to provide an effective means to represent and analyze a process and, by doing so, to enhance the understanding of the modeled process.
