Reference /Wang Y., 2000/ Software Engineering Processes: Principles and Applications
Definition/
Use
A process is a set of sequential practices (or BPA) which are functionally coherent and reusable for software project organization, implementation, and management.
2000
Reference /Wang Y., 2000/ Software Engineering Processes: Principles and Applications
Definition/
Use
The software engineering process is a set of sequential practices that are functionally coherent and reusable for software engineering organization, implementation, and management. It is usually referred to as the software process, or simply the process.
