Abstract

Research work on Software Process Modelling in which ICL has been involved has focussed on the use of specially designed process modelling languages such as MASP [Gri92] from the ALF Project [Old92] or PML [B+] from the IPSE 2.5 Project [War89], which are used to construct the “glue” that binds software development tools together to create “process centred environments” (PCEs). A problem common to all PCEs is that of dealing with the processes that are enshrined inside large, functionally rich software development tools that users may require them to host. In this position paper we look at the implications of some recent developments and standards and how we perceive they are changing the nature of the software process modelling problem.
