    PSPSM - Personal Software ProcessSM



    SEI - Software Engineering Institute


    he Personal Software Process (PSP) is a new SEI technology that brings discipline to the practices of individual software engineers, dramatically improving the quality, predictability, and cycle time for software-intensive systems. PSP makes engineers aware of the processes they use to do their work and the performance of those processes. They learn to set personal goals for improvement, measure and analyze their work, and adjust their process to meet their goals. In this way, software engineers develop the ability to predict their performance and manage the quality of the work they produce. It is a strategy for professional self-development and enhanced productivity.
