About this book


Process automation provides a means to integrate people in a software development organization with the development process and the tools supporting that development. This new technology may significantly improve software quality and development productivity. However, as yet there is little practical experience in its day-to-day use.
This book is for those who wish to explore the technology or are considering its adoption. The monograph discusses the underlying concepts, reviews in some detail two of the major process automation products, relates process automation to process improvement, and provides adoption guidelines. Special emphasis is on the process modeling language ProNet which is commercially available. The book is enriched by numerous examples, tables, and technical appendices.
