Abstract

One of the main requirements that software development SMEs must fulfill is to adopt a standard or model quality that guarantees the quality in their products or services software. However, this kind of organization lacks of well-defined processes. In this context, implementing a model or standard quality for them represents some difficulties such as: lack of knowledge about these, its adoptions takes a prolonged learning curve, the certification of these for SMEs and their staff has high costs. Therefore, this paper presents a tool based on ontological Model of CMMI-DEV v1.3. The main objective is to provide SMEs a tool that contrast their current processes obtained through a method to extract of knowledge tacit versus ontological tool for CMMI-DEV v1.3 processes, in order to identify improvement findings to implement them in their actual organizational processes.
