The main objective of this work is analyzing the applicability of CMMi (Capability Maturity Model Integration) in developing a detailed software process for small organizations. The implementation of mature methods is hard, requiring highly trained and experienced people. It is usually complicated to apply evolved software processes in smaller organizations due to their lack of mature cultural habits in the use of techniques, tools, metrics, quality patterns, etc., in other words, complete methodologies. Thus, it is essential to incorporate a small but appropriate set of software tools in supporting complete engineering software processes in small organizations.
