Abstract

CMMI-ACQ is a model that provides guidance to organizations on the acquisition of software products and related services. This paper addresses an organizational proposal that establishes a multi-model workflow in order to implement specific practices of the Solicitation and Supplier Agreement Development (SSAD) process area of CMMI-ACQ model. To achieve this, the Organization of the Acquisition Processes (OAP) procedure is implemented. OAP have helped to determine the implementation sequences of the acquisition processes areas at maturity level 2. Once the sequence is obtained, the explicit dependencies and prioritization of the practices within the SSAD process area are analyzed, in order to establish the workflow and its multi-model environment.
