Value-Based Processes for COTS-Based Applications
Found in: IEEE Software
By Ye Yang, Jesal Bhuta, Barry Boehm, Daniel N. Port
Issue Date:July 2005
pp. 54-62
Traditional software process models assume the software system will be developed largely by writing code from scratch, and thus fail to address many of the challenges associated with developing COTS-based applications (CBAs). This often leads to the select...
