Process modelling is a key activity of software process management and it is the starting point for enacting, evaluating andimproving software processes. The current competitive marketplace calls for the continuous improvement of processes and there-fore, it is fundamental to have software process models with a high maintainability. In this paper we introduce a set of metricsfor software process models and discuss how these can be used as maintainability indicators. In particular, we report the resultsof a family of experiments that assess relationships between the structural properties, as measured by the deﬁned metrics, of theprocess models and their maintainability.
