Software Process: A Roadmap (slides - PDF)
Alfonso Fuggetta

Abstract: Software process research deals with the methods and technologies used to assess, support, and improve software development activities. The field has grown up since the 80s to address the increasing complexity and criticality of software development activities. This talk aims to briefly present the history and achievements of software process research, some critical evaluation of the results produced so far, and possible directions for future work.

This presentation is based on a paper presented at ICSE 2000, in the Future of Software Engineering special track. A PDF version of the paper is available.
