In this paper, based on a proposal of a reference framework for process-oriented software development organisations, we discuss some issues related to the usage of the RUP’s disciplines as instantiations of those processes. The proposals made in this paper were consolidated based on experiences from real projects. The respective lessons learnt from two of those projects are reported.
