Process technology implications of procurement processes: Some initial observations.
In: Gruhn, V, (ed.)
SOFTWARE PROCESS TECHNOLOGY.
(pp. 105 - 110).
We report on a study of procurement processes in a large organization. The purpose of the study was to identify problems in the organization's procurement processes and to suggest improvement actions. Procurement processes determine the characteristics of software processes. Procurement processes are themselves complex and amenable to,process technology. Cost and scheduling benefits can be realised if procurement and contracting organizations integrate their respective processes. We conclude by highlighting the implications of procurement processes for the process research agenda.
