Software quality evaluation based on ISO/IEC 9126 and ISO/IEC 14598 has been widely accepted in various areas. However, these standards for software quality do not provide practical guidelines to apply the quality model and the evaluation process of software products. And the quality management in most software projects has been conducted by managing defects without applying the standard quality model. Thus, we propose a software product evaluation process (SPEP) to support the component based development (CBD). The SPEP adopts a tailored process from the standard evaluation process with applying weights of quality characteristics and checklists for the CBD artifacts. We also show a trial evaluation case through applying the SPEP to a small-scale software project. As a result, we believe that the SPEP will contribute to acquire high quality software.
