Reference models available for software process improvement are often not satisfactorily suitable for application in the improvement of productoriented software engineering. The resulting need to develop more suitable models for the engineering of software products by integrating, customizing, specializing or enhancing existing models is additionally enforced by the wide spectrum of models available, but focused on specific improvement areas or engineering paradigms, and the need of companies and industry sectors for compliance with more than one model. The goal of the research underlying this paper is thus to support the development of process reference models for the context of product-oriented software engineering by distilling methodological support for the derivation of respective model development methods. The aim of the present paper is to present the goals, identified related work and state-ofthe-art, and the envisioned approach of this ongoing research to the software process improvement community.
