Abstract

Most quality management systems (QMS) which integrate software development are based on a single software development method. This particular method is en- forced on all projects. The resulting QMS has to fulfil the ISO 9000 standards [13] and enables the control of the projects and the improvement of the develop- ment process, supporting it with all necessary guidelines and providing one ter- minology for the whole company. However, using only one specific method is not necessarily the best solution for a company with very heterogeneous projects and products. Requirements of customers, existing experience and training in the teams, projects still using structured methods and newer ones using object-orient- ed methods
