Sustainability of Software Process Maturity

Authors(5) :-Muhammad Awais, Izaz Khan, Anum Zahoor, Muhammad Ikram, Hussain Khan

A lot of work has been done on Process improvement but still organizations facing a number of problems during software process improvement. For getting process maturity the organizations should make much effort. This paper includes a literature study of different articles about software process, process improvement, and sustainability and how we will achieve sustainable process. We investigated the issues and difficulties occur during process improvement and then identified different factors to improve the software process. Moreover, in this paper we pointed out problems during process improvement and described some suggestions for achieving sustainable software process.
