This work provides a solution to automate the software development processes specified by the software process engineering metamodel (SPEM). To achieve this automation, the software development activities specified in SPEM are transformed in a subprocess specification of the Business Process Modeling notation (BPMN) defined by object management group (OMG), this transformation is done by Relations language which belongs to Query/Views/ Transformations (QVT). The obtained BPMN subprocess definition is turned into a specification in a standard language to put in action the workflow processes, such as Business process execution language for Web services (BPEL4WS) o XML Process definition language (XPDL). Therefore, in this way, the specification for the language to be implemented will be the input to a Workflow engine. Not only is the automation of the transformation achieved by this specification, but also, and basically, the automation of any software development process specified by SPEM through its transformation into BPMN subprocesses.
