Abstract or Description

A suite of standards for software process assessment is being developed by ISO under the SPICE project. The intent of the SPICE standard is to harmonize the numerous efforts around the world to manage and improve the software process. This work is related to the software process work being done by the SEI, and the SEI is actively participating in the ISO activities. Drafts of the standard are being trialled now, and there are several issues that will need to be resolved as the suite progresses toward standardization. This paper provides an SEI perspective on some of these issues.
