Quality Management for Small Enterprises


The implementation of quality improvement programs require resources that small enterprises usually cannot set aside without risking their business. Existing models for process and people improvement, like for example CMM, BOOTSTRAP, SPICE, PSP, TSP, and P-CMM, are intended for large and medium size companies. These models often have a considerable overhead and are not directly applicable in small enterprises or development units.

The long-term goal of this project is to develop a practically and theoretically sound quality management model for small companies, with adequate tool support.

This project is part of the Software Engineering Cluster and funded by the Swedish National Board for Industrial and Technical Development (NUTEK, grant P11755-1) and Svenska Test.
