Abstract

Organizations are attempting to provide software that will meet stakeholders' quality requirements. Experts recognize that interactions between quality requirements might be conflictive. A trade-off study is an approach that can be carried out in order to resolve this issue. Since a trade-off study is a kind of decision process, we have reviewed the decision processes in CMMI and ISO/IEC 12207 in order to identify the process requirements. As we wished to deal with only one set of requirements, we have applied a harmonization technique whose results show that tasks of the ISO/IEC 12207 decision process could be embedded in practices from the CMMI decision process. We have then developed a proposal for a process framework to deal with these issues, which includes a trade-off quality process. We depict the elements taken into account to build the framework, and the trade-off process is presented at a generic level.
