Software process technology emerged as an identified research and development activity in the early 1980s. Since then, several international workshops and conferences have contributed to the creation of an international community with a common understanding of the concepts involved.
Numerous prototypes and tools are now appearing to support thesoftware process life cycle. The first European Workshop on Software ProcessTechnology was held in 1991, which led among other things to the creation ofan ESPRIT working group. EWSPT '92 is the first event of this working group.
This volume presents the proceedings of EWSPT '92. The papers areorganized into sections on:
- Concepts and reference frameworks,
- Humanand social aspects in process modelling,
- Process engines and enactment mechanisms,
- Process lifecycle.
