The Programming Process Architecture is a framework describing required activities for an operational process that can be used to develop system or application software. The architecture includes process management tasks, mechanisms for analysis and development of the process, and product quality reviews during the various stages of the development cycle. It requires explicit entry criteria, validation, and exit criteria for each task in the process, which combined form the “essence” of the architecture. The architecture describes requirements for a process needing no new invention, but rather using the best proven methodologies, techniques, and tools available today. This paper describes the Programming Process Architecture and its use, emphasizing the reasons for its development.
