The Process Modelling Cookbook was developed as part of a collaborative project between British Telecommunications plc. and the University of Manchester. Its orientation owes much to this concord of industrial requirements and academic research interests. The Cookbook is described with reference to its structure of Representation and Refinement and the multi-formalism modelling approach. At the time of writing two case study evaluations are in progress. The early implications of these are… 
Customization and Evolution of Process Models in EPOS
Work is going on to use roles and access rights to better control process change, and to support the full process model life-cycle by a “CASE tool” for PM.
Towards Systematic Knowledge Elicitation for Descriptive Software Process Modeling
Fundamental difficulties in gaining process knowledge are sketched and a systematic approach to process elicitation is described that employs techniques from other domains like social sciences that have been tailored to the process elicit context and places them in a decision framework that gives guidance on selecting appropriate techniques in specific modeling situations.
View-Based vs Traditional Modeling Approaches: Which Is Better?
It is taken that models of software processes eliciting using a view-based approach are generally of higher quality than those elicited using traditional, non-view based, modeling approaches.
