Historically, the process of software development has played an important role in the field of software engineering. A number of software life-cycle models have been developed. These models do not expose myriad details that are critical in any large software development project. Recent developments, however, have unfolded many hidden aspects of the software process, giving rise to a new discipline, that called software process engineering. The author depicts software process in the context of software environments, examines recent developments in the process field and proposes the concept of process cycle, which embodies the scope of engineering and evolution of software processes. The author describes the details of the process cycle, including such issues as the role of corporate goals and policies in the engineering, management, performance and improvement of software processes; the transformation of the process artifacts through the process cycle; role of human beings in this (meta-) process; and communications in the cycle
