Abstract

This Article presents a set of software process antipatterns, which arise as a result of bad practices within application development processes. Process AntiPatterns warn us about the harmful effects that may arise in projects, and also describe the features that identify them. The proposed anti-patterns provide a catalog that serves as a vocabulary for communication among project participants. Such Antipatterns can be implemented through software tools in order to keep better record of their implementation. Additionally, a tool that can operate under GPL (General Public license) is provided for this purpose.
