Most process improvement has focused on defect reduction. This reflects the increasing attentions paid by industry to product quality and standard.
However other process attributes can also be the focus of improvement
Process attributes / characteristics -:
Process Improvement Cycle-:
A] Process Measurement
B] Process Analysis
C] Process Change
A] Process Measurement-:
Attributes of current processes are measured. These are baseline for accessing improvement
B] Process Analysis-:
The current process is accessed and weakness are identified
C] Process Change-:
Changes to process that have been identified during the analysis are introduced.
Process Improvement Cycle is used for
• To develop effective software
• To develop more reliable
