Three main interrelated themes are identified in the work of software
process technologists: software process modeling and definition;
software process assessment and improvement; and software process
support. Within these main themes, many technical problems need to
be solved before process technology and the support it provides for
industrial production reaches full maturity. Approaches to improving
software productivity and product quality over the past thirty years
are summarized, and the emergence of the process view during the
last decade is charted. The main themes of current process work are
discussed, and a number of the key technical issues that need to
be addressed in the development of effective software process support
are identified
