This paper presents the arguments for Creation and Validation of a Composite Process Framework that would enable formal modeling and management of the Application Software Development & Integration (CASDPF). The arguments for this research are based on the practical understanding of the authors that no single ‘type’ of process appears to be suitable for software development projects. Increasingly, there appears to be a need to use high-ceremony ‘waterfall’ type approaches at the programme and project management level, whereas at individual level, ‘agile’ aspects of a process seem to help. The dichotomy between extensive modeling of the high-ceremony approach and the practically nil modeling of the low-ceremony ‘agile’ approach needs to be studied, understood and incorporated in a process. A composite process framework has the potential for accepting this responsibility of balancing the modeling with software projects, as is argued in this paper.
