  • Ross Jeffery
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3966)


This paper argues for the need for mechanisms to support the analysis and tracing of relationships between the business process and the software process used to instantiate elements of that business process in software. Evidence is presented to support this argument from research in software process and industry actions and needs as stated in reports to government.
